Data from: Gene expression, chromosome heterogeneity and the fast-X effect in mammals

Linh-Phuong Nguyen, Nicolas Galtier, Benoit Nabholz & L.-P. Nguyen
The higher rate of non-synonymous over synonymous substitutions (dN/dS) of the X chromosome compared with autosomes is often interpreted as a consequence of X hemizygosity. However, other factors, such as gene expression, are also known to vary between X and autosomes. Analysing 4800 orthologues in six mammals, we found that gene expression levels, associated with GC content, fully account for the variation in dN/dS between X and autosomes with no detectable effect of hemizygosity. We...
