Table 2 Correlations between composition and code-error value

From: Do universal codon-usage patterns minimize the effects of mutation and translation error?

   UC (or AG) UG (or AC) UA (or GC)
Bacteria Natural 0.23 (1 × 10-6) 0.14 (1 × 10-6) 0.023 (0.0012)
  Permuted 0.017 (0.0055) 0.0020 (0.35) 0.023 (0.0011)
  Random 0.23 (1 × 10-6) 0.0026 (0.28) 0.00064 (0.59)
Eukaryotes Natural 0.21 (1 × 10-6) 0.0021 (0.46) 0.12 (1 × 10-6)
  Permuted 0.14 (1 × 10-6) 0.00012 (0.86) 0.0033 (0.35)
  Random 0.20 (1 × 10-6) 0.0014 (0.55) 0.0069 (0.18)
Archaea Natural 0.14 (0.029) 0.28 (0.0016) 0.37 (0.00017)
  Permuted 0.073 (0.13) 0.016 (0.49) 0.029 (0.34)
  Random 0.10 (0.071) 0.00056 (0.90) 0.025 (0.38)
  1. Coefficient of determination (r2) and P-value for natural and representative randomized usages. Because of the much smaller sample size in archaea, the significance of the correlations is generally much lower than in the other two domains (n = 33 for archaea, 264 for eukaryotes, and 457 for bacteria).
