  1. All peach ESTs were named based on similarity to Arabidopsis proteins determined via BLASTX. b Closest Arabidopsis homolog identified using TAIR BLAST [64]. AGI proteins database was queried with peach nucleotide sequences using BLASTX or in the case of 18S rRNA, Arabidopsis genome database with BLASTN.
