Histone H1 subtypes are involved in chromatin higher-order structure. The representation of the subtypes varies greatly depending on the cellular and developmental context. We have estimated the rates of nucleotide substitution for several H1 subtypes, including mammalian and amphibian H1 degree, avian H5, and mammalian H1a-e and H1t, with the aim of finding evidence for their functional differentiation. The rates of nonsynonymous substitution differ among the subtypes by almost one order of… CONTINUE READING
