Syntenic alignments of five flanking splicing junctions of FLJ33706.

(Top) The syntenic alignments of five flanking splicing junctions of FLJ33706 among 13 species were shown, in which intron regions were highlighted in blue boxes and splicing sites were highlighted in red. Lineage-specific insertions, unalignable bases in the gap region and uncertain regions were were marked as ‘-’, ‘ = ’ and ‘N’, respectively. (Bottom) The splicing sites from 8 species were shown in the context of the phylogeny. Red ‘Y’ represents presence of the splicing signal and blue ‘N’ represents absence. Exons and introns are not drawn to scale.
