Average synonymous and nonsynonymous substitutions in vertebrate Elovl5 orthologs. Cumulative index of the synonymous (dS, dashed line) and nonsynonymous (dN, solid line) substitutions for all the pairwise comparisons are plotted against the open reading frame of vertebrate Elovl5 orthologs. SNAP was used under the default settings to compute the overall dS and dN for all the pairwise comparisons in the predicted “catalytic site” and flanking areas. CS, indicates the region of the predicted catalytic site. Exon boundaries are depicted along the X-axis, E2-E8.
