Table 2 Summary of results of codon models of evolution for the 3 mammals with greatest longevity to body mass variation, i.e. human, naked mole rat and Myotis lucifugus

From: Molecular adaptation of telomere associated genes in mammals

CladeC Human Myotis lucifugus(Microbat) Naked mole rat
ω > 1 NA DKC1 RAD51D
Lineage-specific positive selection | families tested 0 | 52 1 | 45 1 | 43
ω < 1 RAD51D ANKHD1 ANKRD17 and BRCA2
Lineage-specific divergence | families tested 1 | 52 1 | 45 2 |43
  1. The significant CladeC versus M2_rel model LRT analysis are summarised. Results for both positive selection (ω > 1) and divergent purifying selection (ω < 1) are shown for the three species of interest.
