Table 4 Summary of the total number of sites, substitutions and substitutions per site at synonymous and noncoding regions, substitutions involving CpGs, relative proportion of substitutions involving CpG dinucleotides and the number of substitutions per site without the influence of CpG dinucleotides

From: Molecular evolution of the Bovini tribe (Bovidae, Bovinae): Is there evidence of rapid evolution or reduced selective constraint in Domestic cattle?

  Total sites Total substitutions Substitutions per site Substitutions involving CpGs Proportion of substitutions involving CpGs Substitutions per site sans CpG
Synonymous 286,995 7,394 0.026 2,262 0.31 0.018
Noncoding 3,767,771 68,602 0.018 8,212 0.12 0.016
  1. Chi-Square comparing the relative proportion of substitutions involving CpG dinucleotides at synonymous and noncoding sites χ2 = 1,300, p < 0.001 and substitutions that did not involve CpG dinucleotides χ2 = 55.7, p < 0.001
