Codon substitution pattern of unitary pseudogenes. The coding substitution pattern unitary pseudogene (green) is significantly smaller (***P < 0.001) than that of protein-coding transcript fragments (blue) with matching size. Only transcripts with a sequence allowing reliable prediction of an open reading frame (94 and 722 unitary pseudogenes and protein-coding transcripts, respectively) were considered.
