  1. Tajima’s relative rate test was carried out by randomly comparing three phylogenetically distant sequences in each case by distributing them into three distinct group. In column 2, group A (OsMPK6), B (PaMPK8) and C (SmMPK16-2); column 3, group A (AtMPK1), B (PaMPK8) and C (CreinMPK4-2); column 4, group A (SiMPK14), B (VcMPK9) and C (PaMPK3); column 5, group A (SbMPK14), B (PpMPK4-3), and C ( PaMPK3). Test was replicated for four times. In all the four cases, statistical result was found to be significant.
