  • a Systematic yeast gene name (

  • b The Plant Chromatin Database ( and cThe Arabidopsis Information Resource were searched for various protein homologs of the yeast proteins. The phylogeny of related gene sequences was examined to make an estimate of the number of hits in the databases with scores equal to or less than (more significant than) E = 0.001 (the expectation of finding two sequences with a given amount of similarity by chance). An E value of 0.001 is considered statistically significant in large databases (Gerstein, 1998; Pearson, 2000).

  • d Arabidopsis has no unambiguous homolog of yeast ARP7, but the orphaned plant ARP7 could be its immediate ortholog (Kandasamy et al., 2005b). In animals, ARP4 homologs have been found in most SWI/SNF complexes and the same could be true in plants.

  • e None detected based on a homology score of less than 0.001.

  • f The Arabidopsis genome encodes eight isovariants of conventional actin that were not included in calculations of isoform diversity.
