Table 1 Diversity and divergence estimates of sedge warbler MHC class I exon 3 alleles, alleles with no deletion, 3 bp deletion alleles and 6 bp deletion alleles, the estimates are reported individually as well as combined for all sequence lengths

From: Extreme MHC class I diversity in the sedge warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus); selection patterns and allelic divergence suggest that different genes have different functions

Exon 3 sequences Number of nucleotide sequences Nucleotide p-distance Number of positively selected sites Number of amino acid sequences Amino acid seq. Per nucleotide seq. Ratio
No deletion alleles 3133 0.128 18 2413 0.77
3 bp deletion 47 0.016 0 32 0.68
6 bp deletion 386 0.111 8 314 0.81
All exon 3 sequences 3566 0.130 - 2760 0.77
