  1. Alleles have been numbered in increasing size order. When the allele size (in base-pairs) observed in the Ames strain was in agreement with the size expected according to Ames sequence data, the values indicated in the table assume that alleles differ in size by a multiple of the motif length. These likely values will have to be confirmed by more accurate size estimation tools and allele sequencing. When the allele size in Ames is not as expected (Ceb-Bams1 and Ceb-Bams28), the estimated values are preceded by a ~. The Vrr and CG3 allele sizes were described in [2]; new alleles are indicated by a ~.
