Figure 4

Correlation between GC (Guanine and Cytosine) content and divergence between KRTAP genes. The synonymous substitution rates (dS) among paralogs within each subfamily and codon GC content (GC%) (A) and third codon GC content (GC3%) (B) of each subfamily is plotted. Dots and circles represent high cysteine KRTAP (HS) and high glycine-tyrosine KRTAP (HGT), respectively. The linear regression formulae for GC and dS are shown.
