To find worm proteins that are associated with functions in multicellularity, we defined a set of 122 eukaryotic protein domains involved in regulation of gene expression and signal transduction (Bork et al., 1997). The domains were in large part from the SMART database (Schultz et al, 1998), though several domains were added. The number of these domains and the domain architectures within the respective proteins were determined in both the yeast and worm datasets. The profiles can be obtained here. A ReadMe file for the profiles is available here.
