  • a The percentages of amino acid residues that differ between the TRIM5α-related proteins of the indicated species within each domain and within the complete protein are shown. The percentages were calculated as follows: number of different residues/total number of residues compared × 100%. Insertions in one sequence were counted as differences and also contributed to the total number of residues compared.
