In silico determination of SLC30 genes tissue expression. The SLC30 sequences (ORF, 5' and 3' UTR) were used for a BLASTN search of the human EST database through NCBI BLAST web service [36]. The significant ESTs (a bit score >150 and an E-value <0.001) were sorted and information regarding each cDNA library was retrieved from either the human Unigene databank [40] or from the respective company catalogue. The calculated frequency of each mRNA transcript for a given tissue is represented by grey levels intensities ranging from no occurrence (white) to values higher than 3.1 occurrences (black).
