Venn diagram showing the intersection of different groups. The EST group represents chimeras that overlap ESTs (n = 557). The liver and skeletal muscle groups reveal chimeras that were present in two kind of samples (n = 443 and 264). The shared DNA sequences group represents chimeras with similar DNA motifs in the genomic regions of both partners (n = 445). The known motif group indicates the shared sequences that significant match the known DNA motifs (n = 81). The RT-PCR group shows chimeras validated by the RT-PCR assay (n = 36).
