  1. Comparative analysis within each vertebrate lineage of the two parts of Rag1, 5' and 3'-ends. For each vertebrate lineage average Tamura-Nei nucleotide distances, and average number of variable nucleotide sites within group have been used for the analysis. Tamura-Nei nucleotide distances cannot be compared for Crocodylia as data are essentially constant between the two parts of the gene. Number of sequences used for each monophyletic vertebrate lineage: Amphibia = 7; Aves = 119; Crocodylia = 13; Lepidosauria = 80; Mammalia = 37; Testudines = 24. "df" indicates the degree of freedom. * indicates the significant p-value (p < 0.05).
