Figure 1

Evolutionary relationships between analyzed species. The JTT matrix-based method [61] is used to compute the evolutionary distances and the phylogenetic tree is constructed using the Neighbor-Joining method [62]. Bootstrapping values from 500 replicates are shown and selected taxon information is depicted on the right. Species abbreviations are as follows: AQ: Amphimedon queenslandica (sponge), DM: Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly), HM: Hydra magnipapillata (hydra), HS: Homo sapiens (human), NV: Nematostella vectensis (sea anemone), SP: Strongylocentrotus purpuratus (sea urchin).
