  1. The middle two columns show the numbers of each gene for a given K+-channel family in fruit fly and mosquito. The right-hand column gives the percent amino-acid identity of the predicted gene product for each gene in Drosophila against its ortholog in Anopheles. In cases for which gene expansion in Anopheles made necessary two identity comparisons (for example, Dm Kv3.1 vs Ag Kv3.1 and Ag Kv3.2), an average value was used.
