Additional file 5. Phylogenetic analysis of bilaterian kisspeptin-type receptors, including expanded receptor families in the starfish A. rubens (ArubKPR1-11) and other echinoderms. The phylogenetic tree was constructed using the maximum-likelihood method, WAG+G4 amino-acid substitution model, and rooted with galanin/allatostatin-A-type receptors as an outgroup. Boostrap support for each node is stated according to SH-aLRT/UFBoot methods. The scale bar indicates amino acid substitutions per site. Species names are as follows: Ajap, Apostichopus japonicus; Arub, Asterias rubens, Anjap Annessia japonica; Bflo, Branchiostoma floridae; Cgig, Crassostrea gigas; Hsap, Homo sapines; Locu, Lepisosteus oculatus; Pdum, Platynereis dumerilii; Skow, Saccoglossus kowalevskii; Spur, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus; Xtro Xenopus tropicalis. Accession numbers for the sequences of the receptors included in this tree are listed in additional file 3.
