Table 2

The distribution of TFBSs in the NRs and NDRs of orthologous genes and Saccharomyces specific genes, and the distribution of TFBSs in duplicate gene pairs.

# of TFBSs in NRs

# of TFBSs in NDRs


Orthologous genes

11710 (3.33)

11895 (3.67)

Saccharomyces specific genes

χ2 = 9.0, p-value < 0.002

620 (5.65)

524 (2.84)

Duplicate pairs

Z-value = 32.07, p-value = 1.25 × 10-40

8793 (5.50)

4892 (3.06)


The values in parenthesis correspond to the number of TFBSs per gene. χ2-test p-value for ortholog and Saccharomyces specific gene sets and one-sided two sample proportion test results for duplicate genes pairs are also shown.
