Nucleotide divergence (%) between human and chimpanzee orthologous LHB and CGB genes calculated for promoter, 5'UTR, genic, mRNA, exonic and intronic regions. Divergence was estimated by using the human (GenBank: NG_000019) and chimpanzee (this study, Genbank: EU000308) reference sequences alone or by incorporating the diversity data obtained from re-sequencing for one or both species into the calculations. The re-sequencing data for human (n = 95) originated from the published study and for chimpanzee (n = 11) from the unpublished dataset of the authors.
