Table 5 Comparison of LTR retroelement age distributions

From: Genomic neighborhoods for Arabidopsisretrotransposons: a role for targeted integration in the distribution of the Metaviridae

Hypotheses Test Group(s) tested Chromosome p-values Accept?
Metaviridae and Pseudoviridae have similar age distributions in the genome MRPP, 10,000 random permutations MV(F), PV(F) 0.0000 No
Metaviridae sublineages have similar age distributions MRPP, 10,000 random permutations MV Athila, Metavirus, Tat 0.0000 No
   MV Athila, Metavirus 0.0000 No
   MV Athila, Tat 0.0003 No
   MV Metavirus, Tat 0.4618 Yes
Metaviridae age distributions are similar whether the elements are in or out of heterochromatin MRPP, 10,000 random permutations MV(F) 0.0021 No

   MV Metavirus 0.5747 Yes
   MV Tat 0.0457 No
Pseudoviridae age distributions are similar whether the elements are in or outside heterochromatin MRPP, 10,000 random permutations PV(F) 0.0167 No
  1. MV, Metaviridae; PV, Pseudoviridae; NL, non-LTR retrotransposon; R, RT-only; S, solo LTR; F, full-length element. p-values < 0.05 are displayed in bold text.
