Table S1. Basic data for the present analysis found in Figs. 1-3 from Mitochondrial determinants of mammalian longevity

Abbreviations: Af, Afrosoricida; Ar, Artiodactyla: Ca, Carnivora; Ce, Cetacea; Ch, Chiroptera; Ci, Cingulata; Da, Dasyuromorphia; Di, Diprotodontia; Eu, Eulipotyphla; La, Lagomorpha; Ma, Macroscelidea; Pe, Perissodactyla; Pi, Pilosa; Ro, Rodentia; Pr, Primates; Si, Sirenia; Tu, Tubulidentata. Currently, Cetacea is included in Cetartiodactyla, because cetaceans are nested within the paraphyletic Artiodactyla; but in this paper we continue to use the old names just to emphasize the uniqueness of whales. A total of 744 complete mammalian mitochondrial protein amino acid sequences were collected from the NCBI database; and 374 data sets of basal metabolic rate (BMR), maximum lifespan (MLS), and body masses (M), from the AnAge database. We analyzed 72 mammalian species with species-to-species coincidence in these 2 databases. The MLS data on 6 animals (Artibeus jamaicensis, Elephas maximus, Hemiechinus auritus, Homo sapiens, Phoca vitulina, Sus scrofa, Tamandua tetradactyla) were given by Moosmann and Behl (2008). M, MLS, and mtMR denote the body mass (g), the maximum lifespan (yrs), and the mt metabolic rate (a. u.), respectively. SC, TC, CC, and HYD denote the Ser, Thr, and Cys contents and hydrophobicity of mtDNA-encoded membrane proteins, respectively. Here, we used the amino-acid sequences of 6 large subunits (ND4, ND5, ND2, CO1, CO3, and CYTB) of complexes I, IV, and III.
