Schematic of the genomic region for four DLX genes. The regions depicted are a) chromosome 2q31.1 (33.0 kb) for DLX1 and DLX2; b) chromosome 7q21.3 (20.1 kb) for DLX5 and DLX6. For both regions, the orientation has the telomere to the right of the figure. The top part of each figure shows the position and relative size of the amplicons sequenced, with the resulting SNPs (S) or insertion/deletion (ID) depicted with a thin vertical line. Below this is a schematic of the transcript in it's genomic context, with coding regions in gray and non-coding regions cross-hatched. Finally, a VISTA alignment of the genomic regions is depicted, comparing the human July 2003 build with the mouse February 2003 build, with regions with >75% sequence identity shaded. Exons for DLX6 do not show up as blue, as it was not annotated on the UCSC RefSeq track.
