Figure 1.

Conserved synteny at the MC locus in teleosts. Genomic organization of the Atlantic cod β5-α1-β1-α4 globin cluster compared with the orthologous locus in zebrafish, medaka, stickleback and pufferfish. Omitted regions in the zebrafish loci are shown. The boxed genes are shown above or below the doubled line to indicate rightward and leftward transcriptional direction, respectively. The color codes for gene names are shown below.
