  • a Codon positions with gaps in the multiple alignment (Fig. 1) were excluded from the calculation. The values for the conserved N-terminal region (550 codon positions compared) are given above the diagonal and the values for the EC C-terminal region (377 codon positions compared) are given below the diagonal.
