Table 1 Cancer genes with codons inserted/deleted in chimpanzee. Summary of chimpanzee cancer genes showing inserted/deleted codons with respect to the human sequence. The number of inserted/deleted codons, the amino acid change and whether the insertion/deletion occurred in trinucleotide expanded regions is shown. The status of this codon in human is also indicated.

From: Comparative analysis of cancer genes in the human and chimpanzee genomes
