Table 2 System-level function categories that are shared between Drosophila and human genes in AIS subfamilies

From: Expansion of signaling genes for adaptive immune system evolution in early vertebrates

System-level function category Number of AIS subfamilies (%) P value*
muscle tissue 2 (4% = 2/48) 4.26 × 10-2
Blood 7 (15% = 7/48) 2.17 × 10-10
innate immunity 6 (13% = 6/48) 1.11 × 10-9
nervous system 28 (58% = 28/48) 9.26 × 10-15
  1. AIS, adaptive immune system.
  2. *P values are calculated by using hypergeometric distribution.
