Scatter plot showing no correlation between the percentage identity between the human (<i>Homo sapiens</i>) or <i>Brugia</i> malayi proteins that do or do not complement the essential functions of the yeast (<i>Saccharomyces cerevisiae</i>) orthologues.

<p>The average protein identity (in %) between heterologous proteins able to complement the yeast deletions was 52.5 ± 10.6, whereas the identity between heterologous proteins NOT able to complement the yeast deletions was 48.1 ± 10.0.</p>
