Examples of the distribution of the number of predicted TFBS in the descendant of a 200-bp ancestral sequence containing two predicted sites that diverge for various durations, for a TF with a relatively high information content matrix (SRF; left) and one with a relatively low information content (GATA-1; right). At low divergence values, the descendant sequence still contains two sites with high probability. As the level of divergence increases, the distribution of the number of predicted sites converges toward a different stationary distribution for each TF.
