Repeated elements within NumtS: content comparisons among species examined. a) Total amount of RE within NumtS genomic intervals, with and without flanking regions (1000 bp upstream and downstream), calculated for each species. Trend in any of species examined reveals more REs in flanking regions with respect to NumtS region alone, with greater emphasis on mouse genome. b) Total RE content (bp and number) in NumtS loci on total NumtS length and number respectively, calculated as percentage. c) Percentage of RE(bp) within NumtS loci on RE content within whole genome. Although mouse genome is less populated with REs, its NumtS are populated by REs with same percentage observed in other species examined.
