Table 1 List of all human LCN and mouse Lcn genes—with official gene symbols, full protein name, aliases, chromosomal locations, isoforms, National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) RefSeq mRNA accession numbers, NCBI RefSeq protein accession numbers, and total number of amino acids (# of AAs) [information retrieved and confirmed from a close bracket]

From: Update on the human and mouse lipocalin (LCN) gene family, including evidence the mouse Mup cluster is result of an “evolutionary bloom”
