Divergence profile between orthologous regions of the human and the chimpanzee LHB/CGB clusters. In total the compared region covered 37,220 bp (Ch)/36,541 (Hu), including 8,084 bp (Ch)/7,973 bp (Hu) from RUVBL2 gene to the end of intergenic region A and 29,136 bp (Ch)/28,568 bp (Hu) from CGB1 to NTF5 gene. The species-specific large duplications (human 12,700 bp, chimp 6,725 bp) have been excluded from the comparison. The percents of nucleotide substitutions and indels are calculated per 500 bp non-overlapping windows. Grey arrows indicate the locations of coding genes drawn to an approximate scale. A – E denote intergenic regions from Figure 1B. Intergenic repeat fraction includes SINEs, LINEs, satellites, simple repeats and low complexity DNA sequences within each intergenic region.
