Table 7 Comparison of Mesostigma genes related to cell structure functions with the genome or ESTs of Chlamydomonas and three embryophytes. The average identity of pair-wise comparisons of Mesostigma expressed genes coding for the indicated cellular functions with the ESTs or genomes of the given organisms are presented.
