Alignments of chicken and zebra finch CYP17 sequences. Homology of chicken CYP17 gene (gDNA) and several zebra finch CYP17 sequences, as depicted in zpicture. A) Comparison of chicken gDNA to itself, to illustrate structure of the gene, B) comparison of a full length zebra finch CYP17 cDNA clone sequence (Accession numbers AY313844 and AY313845) to chicken gDNA, C) comparison of the CYP17 gene sequence obtained from the zebra finch genomic assembly to the chicken gDNA, showing substantial missing sequence, and D) comparison of zebra finch Contig 28.226 sequence, a contig that was not incorporated into the assembly, to the 3' end of the CYP17 gene. Note the scale of homology is from 50-100%, and that arrows in top block denote the chicken gene sequence is oriented so that the 5' end is on the right.
