We constructed a concatenated alignment of 574 orthologous genes and conducted statistical model selection as in a previous study (5) and, on that alignment, constructed a maximum-likelihood phylogeny by PhyML (7).
We searched for orthologous genes of these three genes for which the detailed function had been discovered in placental mammals; there were no one-to-one orthologous genes and only many-to-many orthologous genes (Table 5).
Significant differences in functions can be reported between orthologous genes with highly similar sequences.
metallicus, lack orthologous genes to pitA and [P.sub.i] is also supposed to be exported after a copper shift in those species.
The predicted proteomes were used with OrthoFinder [39] to identify orthologous genes.
The parameter settings were as follows: minimum identity between orthologous genes, 0.05 and maximum false discovery rate on motif similarity, 0.001.

Characterization of AtSTOP1 orthologous genes in tobacco and other plant species.
A major feature of our approach is the fact that it relied on a pathway enrichment analysis, thereby allowing comparisons to be made between species without the need to rely on a limited subset of orthologous genes. In this context, it is worth contrasting our findings with those of Iskar et al.
