For this purpose, we compile a large sample of 725 broad-line AGNs, which consists of 498 radio-loud sources and 227 radio-quiet sources. We confirm that radio-loud objects have a steeper slope (ξRX) with respect to radio-quiet objects and that the dependence of the BH fundamental plane on the BH mass (ξRM) is weak. Description: Our sample is selected based on the cross-identification of the newly published X-ray-emitting SDSS AGN catalog (Anderson et al. 2007, Cat. J/AJ/133/313) and the catalog of the FIRST 20cm radio survey (White et al. 1997, Cat. VIII/71). File Summary:

Note (1): Represented by the Hbeta broad component luminosity or the MgII emission line luminosity (when Hbeta is unavailable). Note (2): Flags as follows: 1 = Hβ broad component luminosity is used to represent the broad emission line luminosity. 0 = MgII emission line luminosity is used to represent the broad emission line luminosity.
