3.  selenop (GeneID:100379942, XB-GENE-5866766) and 'unnamed' (GeneID:448755, XB-GENE-5872749) are paralogous genes on chromosome 1 and 4, respectively.

selenop encodes a selenoprotein with mutliple selenocysteine (Sec) residues (18), similar to SELENOP orthologs in mammals.

'unnamed' has exon structure similar to selenop gene and encodes a protein with high sequence similarity to proteins referred to as selenoprotein Pb or selenoprotein Pb-like (PMIDs:22479358, 11168591), but it is NOT a selenoprotein.

Some selenoproteinPb proteins contain a single Sec residue (e.g., zebrafish NP_840083.2 and chicken NP_001335698.1), but in frog, Sec is replaced by cysteine. For this reason, naming this locus is hard because it represents a cysteine-containing homolog of selenoprotein Pb protein family.

To comply with Gladyshev et al.'s recommendation for naming paralogs (PMID:27645994, in table 3, SELENOP2 is recommended symbol for synonym SELPb), I would like to suggest the following nomenclature update for selenop and 'unnamed', but am open for the naming of the latter:   current                       symbol        name selenop (XB-GENE-5866766) >   selenop1      selenoprotein P1 

unnamed (XB-GENE-5872749) >   selenop2l     selenoprotein P2-like
