Table 1 Summary information about conservation of mouse cassette exons

From: Rodent-specific alternative exons are more frequent in rapidly evolving genes and in paralogs

  rodent duplications rapidly evolving orthologous genes moderately evolving orthologous genes slowly evolving orthologous genes all orthologs
Conserved exons 72 (67.3%) 877 (76.3%) 1591 (78.1%) 1813 (80.9%) 4281 (78.9%)
Rodent-specific exons 18 (16.8%) 77 (6.7%) 114 (5.6%) 100 (4.5%) 291 (5.4%)
Estimated real rodent-specific exons 10 (9.3%) 44 (3.8%) 61 (3.0%) 48 (2.1%) 153 (2.8%)
