  • a Number of codons that contain base pair changes, shown as a pair of numbers−the first is the number of changed codons that are synonymous (S); the second is the number of nonsynonymous (N) codons.

  • b The coding portion is defined as the longer coding region of the pr6(−) allele.

  • c 12 synonymous changes before the frameshift, 6 after; 6 nonsynonymous changes before the frameshift, 9 after.

  • d The internal duplication in the mt+ gene was scored as a single indel within an intron.

  • e GenBank U13167 and U55893.

  • f Our unpublished data.
