Table 1 Commona/restrictedb insertions and deletions in proteins inferred for nematodes with different trophic ecologies

From: Systematic analysis of insertions and deletions specific to nematode proteins and their proposed functional and evolutionary relevance

  Free-Living nematodes Caenorhabditis species Plant-parasitic nematodes Animal/human parasitic nematodes All Parasitic nematodes
Insertions 213/831 26/340 10/561 1/901
Deletions 159/1894 81/1285 59/2267 3/3552
  1. a, common indels, conserved among all members of a group and specific to that group of nematodes,
  2. b, restricted indels, restricted to a group of nematodes but not conserved among all of its members.
