Table 1 Molecular evolution and conservation of lafoin.

From: Conservation of the glucan phosphatase laforin is linked to rates of molecular evolution and the glucan metabolism of the organism

  1. Rates of molecular evolution are defined in these studies as either substitutions per amino acid and/or position and phase of introns
