  • a The Needleman-Wunsch algorithm hosted by EMBL-EBI Pairwise Sequence Alignment was used to calculate the similarity score; overall comparisons were based on the sequence with the C-terminal halves deleted, and the Blosum62 matrix and other gap penalties were determined using default parameters.

  • b Toxin did not show toxicity.

  • c Toxin presented toxicity against C. elegans.

  • d Toxicity was undetermined.
