Betv1 homologues are a ubiquitous group of genes in flowering plants encoding a class of highly conserved defense-related proteins and containing open reading frames from 465 to 480 bp. Betv1-like genes consist of two exons interrupted by an intron of 76-359 bp, with the intron position highly conserved. The pairwise p distance ranged from 0 to 0.583 among flowering plants. Within plant families, the ranges of the p distance were 0-0.403, 0-0.253, and 0.011-0.369, for Apiaceae, Betulaceae, and… CONTINUE READING
