Identity scores were calculated by ClustalW alignments and include scores for the novel human PPARδ exons and human exon 2, exon 3 and coding exons (1326 bp) for comparison. Exon 1 was not included since complete sequence information for this exon is not available for all species. Scores given in italic numbers indicate a sequence without conserved splice junctions.
* Sequence comparison precluded by unsequenced gaps in the macaque PPARδ gene
†A full-length exon is not conserved. Identity scores are given for a sequence homologous to the 3'-region of the comparable human exon
‡ An orthologous exon was not identified. Identity scores are given for a sequence with the highest homology scores within the genomic region comparable to the location of the human exon
