  • a Putative small-molecule transporters and some proteins of related function are listed in the order of their discussion in the text.

  • b By RNA-Seq (see Table S3). The arithmetic mean of the values from experiments 1 and 2 is shown except for transcript 77179/1 (line 5). ∞, expression was not detected in aposymbiotic animals. Transcript 77179/1 was detected in aposymbiotic anemones in experiment 1 but not in experiment 2, giving a nominal ∞-fold change in expression in that experiment. However, because the normalized read counts in both experiments were rather low, and because the possible involvement of the 77179/1-encoded protein in lipid metabolism makes it possible that its expression level was affected by the starvation conditions used in experiment 2, we indicate here the more conservative value from experiment 1 alone.

  • c By qPCR (see Table S1); ND, not determined.

  • d Encoding putative protein Npc2D (Figure 2 and Figure S1).
