  1. aGene locations were annotated by sequenced full-length mRNA.
  2. bIndicates exon fusion with the adjacent exon.
  3. cThe AvBD11 and AvBD14 mRNA sequences were not obtained from the liver and spleen so that only their coding sequences were predicted using GeneWise and chicken AvBD11 and AvBD14 amino acid sequences.
  4. dN/A means not available or not applicable (i.e., without untranslated regions).
  5. eTwo AvBD5 splice variants were obtained from rapid amplification of cDNA ends.
