The Rabbit genome fragment R-MCPgb containing the CCL2 and CCL1 genes is compared to its Human correlate according to the alignment in Additional file 5. The identification of the Rabbit orthologs of the Human CCL genes based on sequence similarity was checked for consistency using Genscan [29], which furthermore provided estimates of the quality of intron splice sites (values varying between 0 and 1 are shown under the heading “P”). Positions of transcription initiator and termination sites were estimated by homology with Human. The exons annotated in the GenBank feature file of the Rabbit sequence (Additional file 1) are marked “v” under “GenB”.
