The C. elegans immunoglobulin domains
The immunoglobulin fold comprises several distinct
superfamilies as classified by SCOP.
Here we list the matching sequences we found in the complete genome of
C. elegans following
this classification system. Here is the complete sequence
of the C.elegans proteome we used in our searches.
FastA and PsiBlast searches:
the results with other methods:
We compared our results with the
SMART collection of
protein domains. Despite the different approach
used by SMART we found that our results largely agree with theirs:
ORFs were found both by SMART and our Combined method.
SMART found an additional 10
ORFs, each ORF having only one IG domain.
We also found an additional 10
ORFs, many of them having several IG domains. Most of the additional
ORFs were also found by Pfam.
