Lineage specific expansion of the SAL1 family. Genomic localization of SAL1 and its orthologous genes in 13 species: pig (Sus scrofa), cow (Bos taurus), horse (Equus caballus), dog (Canis familiaris), guinea pig (Cavia porcellus), rat (Rattus norvegicus), mouse (Mus musculus), rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), macaque (Macaca mulatta), chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), gorilla (Gorilla gorilla), marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) and elephant (Loxodonta Africana). Genes that belong to SAL1 family are in black. Pseudogenes are in gray. Orthologous flanking genes SNX30, SLC46A2, ZFP37, SLC31A2 and FKBP15 are in pink, red, green, blue and purple, respectively. Numbers of chromosomes and localization of genes on chromosomes are indicated near each species.
