Table 2 Nucleotide and protein variation between the H2A variants analyzed and between different taxonomic groups.

From: The evolutionary differentiation of two histone H2A.Z variants in chordates (H2A.Z-1 and H2A.Z-2) is mediated by a stepwise mutation process that affects three amino acid residues
