Table 3 Comparison of age of HK2 and other loci in the human genome

From: The decline of human endogenous retroviruses: extinction and survival

Time of integration ERV family
HK2 Other
Macaque to chimpanzeea 42 (43)c 65 (54)c
After chimpanzeeb 12 (11)c 3 (14)c
  1. aNumber of loci that integrated after the divergence from the macaque (31.6mya) but before the divergence from the chimpanzee (6.6mya). All loci represented by the pre-integration site in the macaque (or baboon).
  2. bNumber of loci that integrated after the divergence from the chimpanzee (6.6mya). Loci represented by the pre-integration site in the chimpanzee.
  3. cThe number shown in parenthesis is that expected if a single integration rate was applied to both time periods.
