Table 3 PTLV evolutionary rate and time-scale calculated with a Bayesian relaxed molecular clock using 1st + 2nd codon positions of concatenated gag-pol-env-tax genes and tax only1.

From: Genetic characterization of the complete genome of a highly divergent simian T-lymphotropic virus (STLV) type 3 from a wild Cercopithecus mona monkey

ND
  1. 1. The tMRCA is the median Bayesian estimate in years ago (ya); 95% HPD intervals are given in parentheses. ND = not determined.
  2. 2. Substitutions/site/year
  3. 3. The tMRCA for this node was constrained by using a uniform distribution prior of 40,000-60,000 ya.
  4. 4. The tMRCA for this node was constrained by using a uniform distribution prior of 15,000-30,000 ya.
  5. 5. The complete genome of STLV-3c is currently not available.
