  1. 1 Identity percentage of cross-species identity determined by Basic Local Alignment Search Toll (BLAST) from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) using the Nucleotide collection (nr/nt) database and the discontiguous megablast algorithm in all instances except for comparison of hamster to human IL-13, where the Blastn algorithm for somewhat similar sequences was used. The percent identities excluded the primer sequences.
  2. 2 N/A: sequences not available in NCBI.
