Comparative analyzes of LG3 showing the conservation of genomic blocks among Nile tilapia, medaka, stickleback, zebrafish, and other vertebrates. BAC-labeled metaphase chromosomes are shown on the left, followed by ideograms and LG3 of O. niloticus. The ideogram was inverted according to LG3 orientation. The markers (TRP1, CLCN5, UNH115, GM180, GM526, UNH106, GM354, and GM204) are identified by different colors and the chromosome positions for medaka and stickleback are indicated in Mb on the right of the idiograms. The table (on the right) summarizes the results of comparative analyzes with other vertebrates. The numbers represent the identified chromosome and the conserved genomic regions are highlighted in different colors. The position of the markers in the chromosomes can be found at www.ensembl.org webcite.
