Table 3 Divergence within IFNA/IFNW clusters.

From: Characterization of the bovine type I IFN locus: rearrangements, expansions, and novel subfamilies

  IFNA/IFNW Clusters
Subfamily 1 2 3
IFNW 0.086 ± 0.007 0.071 ± 0.007 0.063 ± 0.006
IFNA 0.053 ± 0.006 0.04 ± 0.006 0.045 ± 0.006
  1. Divergence rate ± standard error for IFNA and IFNW within clusters was calculated by using the Maximum Composite Likelihood method. The number of base substitutions per site from averaging over all sequence pairs within each cluster is shown. Cluster 1 genes have a slightly higher divergence rate than cluster 1 and 2, but genes within all three clusters are relatively equal in their rate of change.
