Table 4 Correlation between different estimates of nucleotide substitution rates (N: non-synonymous, S: synonymous) of the DRB1*03 lineage when sampled across all available species (N = 18) and when only catarrhines are considered (N = 11).

From: Correlated evolution of nucleotide substitution rates and allelic variation in Mhc-DRB lineages of primates

  1. ABS: contact residues, non-ABS: non-contact residues. Effect sizes as estimated from the PGLS model that adjusted for the phylogenetic relationships of species and used statistical weights (log10-sample size) in a combination that offered the best fitted to the data based on maximised log-likelihood. ***: P < 0.001; **: P < 0.01; *: P < 0.05; † < 0.1.
