Phylogenetic tree of full length nuclear receptors. Phylogenetic relationship of full length nuclear receptors in D. pulex, D. melanogaster, C. elegans, and H. sapiens. The nuclear receptors from four different species were subjected to phylogenetic comparisons using Bayesian Inference, Maximum Parsimony, and Neighbor-Joining. The Bayesian tree is shown with posterior probabilities from the Bayesian tree, and bootstrap support values (frequency of occurrence) from the Maximum Parsimony and Neighbor-Joining (Distance) trees provided in order from left to right, respectively. The probability values are separated by forward slashes at each corresponding node; an X indicates an area of disagreement from the Bayesian tree. The non-Bayesian trees were not able to distinguish separate subfamilies. The phylogenetic comparisons were done as described for the LBD/DBD trees, except the burnin was 10,000 for the full length Bayesian Inference analysis. Notations Dp, Dm, Hp, and Ce in association with receptor names denote sequences from D. pulex, D. melanogaster, H. sapiens, and C. elegans, respectively.
