Syntenic relationships of X. tropicalis, G. gallus, M. domestica and human genomic regions involving MHC. The red rectangles on ideograms of human chromosomes show the locations of the MHC (chr 6) and the two MHC paralogous regions (chr 1). Red asterisks indicate the loci for the human chitinase/chitolectin genes on chr1 (p13.3-p13.2) and chr1 (q32.1). The labeled horizontal arrows below the two ideograms designate the regions and orientations of human chromosomes 1 and 6 that correspondingly align with G. gallus chromosome 26 (black); X. tropicalis scaffold 41 (gray), and M. domestica chromosome 2 (diagonal-pattern).
