Overview of the defensin gene cluster region in mouse (top) and human (bottom). A clone tiling path is shown for the corresponding regions in mouse (top) and human (bottom). Clones are displayed in yellow but regions overlapping with adjacent clones are shown in black. Genes are indicated by arrows. Genes in shadowed boxes are duplicated and the color indicates the pairs; A -'- highlights all potential Defcr5 genes (see color legend for more details). The mouse assembly is based on NCBIM37, in which three gaps currently exist; two gaps are indicated by grey bars and the biggest gap between the two clusters is joined by a 'V'.
