They found that Gomafu shares homologous region with RNCR2 and that human homologous sequence was located in a syntenic region of chromosome 22q12.
Genomewide analysis using mouse model of hepatocellular carcinomas showed chromosome amplification at 9qA1, which was syntenic to chromosome region 11q22 in human.
Further new developments include enhanced interactive analysis and visualization options on the genomic sequence level, including sequence quality scores to support the interpretation of variant data and syntenic regions among the compared genomes.
None of these loci are syntenic in the chicken genome and, because of the conserved chromosome structure in bird genomes, they presumably are unlinked (Derjusheva et al.
(61) Using the human genome sequence information on chromosome 7q 21 which is syntenic to the mouse proximal Chr6, we identified PEG10/Peg10 next to SGCE/Sgce in both humans and mice in 2001 (Fig.

Several human linkage studies reported metabolic QTLs in its syntenic region [11, 12].
The syntenic X-chromosome region of three marsupial species (wallaby, Macropus eugenii; Tasmanian devil, Sarcophilus harrisii, and opossum, Monodelphis domestica) and one monotreme (platypus, Ornithorhynchus anatinus) genome, focusing on the chromosomal region around the HPRT locus, has been systematically searched and no sequences similar to PLAC1 have been found.
Evaluation of genome conservation between rainbow trout and three teleost models, medaka, stickleback, and zebrafish, provides evidence of syntenic segment conservation in certain teleosts [38].
For example, by directing snapback primers to genotype an additional 2 synonymous variants (p.Y1424Y and p.T966T) and a syntenic pair of variants (p.G576A and p.R668C) that constitute a complex allele (26,27), the sequencing required for the patients we have analyzed could be reduced by an additional factor of 2 (see Table 5 in the online Data Supplement).
On a screen for copy-number changes in mouse mammary tumors, YAP is the only gene found in a small 350 bp amplicon from a region, that is, syntenic to a much larger locus amplified in human cancers at chromosome 11q22.
