Table 2 Distribution of 10-mers DUS in the genes showing phase variation and/or containing signal peptides

From: The impact of the neisserial DNA uptake sequences on genome evolution and stability

  Number of genes Number of DUSs Expected P value
N. meningitis Z2491 74 13 25 0.01
N. meningitis MC58 61 6 22 0.0004
N. meningitis FAM18 72 20 27 0.16
N. meningitis 8013 53 3 16 0.0008
  1. Expected values were computed taking into consideration the number and size of these genes relative to the average gene in the genome. P values were computed using χ2. DUS, DNA uptake sequence.
