Table 1 Genes with class 1 (functional TATA box-containing) promoters in S. cerevisiae having orthologs which lack a TATA box in one or more other species of sensu stricto group.

  1. a For non-conserved TATA boxes, the minimal number of nucleotides different from the consensus sequence of TATA box (TATA(A/T)A(A/T)(A/G)) is shown in parentheses. "Gap" indicates an alignment gap at the site of the TATA box; "GA" means that ORF was not present in the given species.
  2. b Parsimonious number of switch events in sensu stricto group; i.e., the minimum number of mutations within sensu stricto group necessary to produce this pattern. The number of events is unknown for ORF YPR119W due to lack of data for S. kudriavtsevii.
  3. c Inferred state in last common ancestor. In cases when more than one equally parsimonious ancestral state was possible, it could not be inferred reliably (marked as '?').
