Table 2 Pairwise alignments of Xenopus cDNA clones and Xl-PSID consensus sequences: Similarity groupings by e-value

From: Probing the Xenopus laevis inner ear transcriptome for biological function

Similarity group Number of XE/Xl-PSID pairwise alignments Number of TE/Xl-PSID pairwise alignments
High (e = 0-10 -100 ) 45 31
Moderate (e = 10 -99 -10 -50 ) 4 17
Weak (e = 10 -49 -10 -15 ) 9 10
Low (e > 10 -14 ) 38 43
Affirmative pairwise alignments (H, M, W) 58 58
(47 unique Xl-PSIDs)
  1. Xl-PSIDs were aligned to Xenopus laevis (XE) and Xenopus tropicalis (TE) inner ear library clone sequences using the BLASTN algorithm. Pairwise alignments were sorted into similarity groups based on e-value. Xl-PSIDs with multiple pairwise alignments to cDNA library clones were counted once. Four Xl-PSIDs aligned to two TE cDNA clones, and one Xl-PSID aligned to eight TE cDNA clones.
