DVDY_21998_sm_SupFigS1.xls181KSupp. Fig. S1. Microsoft Excel file listing each clone/EST that was sequenced along with its corresponding clone ID, NCBI accession numbers, and putative or known identities based on similarity (BLAST) analyses as explained in the text, and detailed in the online database ( In addition, information is provided summarizing expression in selected tissues and regions, as indicated in each column and the key included in the top right corner. Also included are details related to redundancies of specific clones sequenced (yellow shaded rows) and those clones that were not successfully examined for embryonic expression due to technical difficulties (green shaded rows). Refer to Figure 2 and for images of embryonic expression.
DVDY_21998_sm_SupFigS2.xls336KSupp. Fig. S2. Microsoft Excel file listing Xenopus lens regeneration clone IDs and their corresponding NCBI accession numbers that could be matched with equivalent Human UniProt IDs and any corresponding Gene Ontology (GO) annotations associated with these specific clones. Refer to This data was used to prepare Figure 2.
DVDY_21998_sm_SupFigS3.xls48KSupp. Fig. S3. Microsoft Excel file showing comparisons of genes expressed during lens regeneration in Xenopus with those found in other regenerating systems. The published references, organisms, and specific regenerating tissues examined are indicated at the top of each column. Genes expressed during lens regeneration in Xenopus were compared individually with gene expression data sets obtained from each study, as indicated. Only genes that were found to be upregulated in those studies were included for these analyses. Genes with overlapping/shared expression are indicated with shaded (colored) entries, and the appropriate accession number or microarray ID is provided where available. The individual Xenopus lens regeneration IDs and NCBI accession numbers are shown to the far left. The known or putative identities based on similarity (see Supp. Fig. S1 and are shown to the far right. In addition, the genes are ranked according to frequency of occurrence in the various studies, which is also indicated at the right. At the bottom of each row is the number of sequences compared from each study. Also refer to Comparisons were made to the studies of Sánchez Alvarado et al., 2002; King et al., 2003; Ishino et al., 2003; Padhi et al., 2004; Katogi et al., 2004; Tazaki et al., 2005; Reddien et al., 2005; Schnapp et al., 2005; Grow et al., 2006; Atkinson et al., 2006; Schebesta et al., 2006; Monaghan et al., 2007; Makarev et al., 2007; Pearl et al., 2008; Gorsic et al., 2008. The microarray data included from the publication of Grow et al. (2006) specifically includes the genes found to be up-regulated in their A, B, and C, sets of microarray comparisons.
