Table 6 Comparison of Mesostigma genes related to metabolic functions with Chlamydomonas and three embryophytes. The average identity (AI) of pair-wise comparisons of Mesostigma expressed genes coding for the indicated metabolic function with the ESTs or genome of the given organisms are presented.
