G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), a large eukaryotic protein family, have proved difficult to comprehensively detect and functionally identify by homology searches and domain detection, because they are highly divergent and their sequences share strikingly little similarity. Transmembrane (TM) topology pattern analysis has been used to classify TM(More)
Genome-wide sequence analysis in the invertebrate chordate, Ciona intestinalis, has provided a comprehensive picture of immune-related genes in an organism that occupies a key phylogenetic position in vertebrate evolution. The pivotal genes for adaptive immunity, such as the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and II genes, T-cell receptors, or(More)
