Table 4 Simplification of Table 3 by removal of slightly overlapping mIMRs

  1. MIMRs that begin and end within two amino acids of a larger mIMR have been removed. Although the distribution of mIMRs is nearly continuous throughout gag, the functional and/or structural association of each is discrete, as indicated by the structure-function notation in the right hand column of this table, which is described in greater detail in Additional File 1.
