Synteny relationships between the human and mouse IRG genes (a) Synteny between mouse chromosome 7 and human chromosome 19 in the region of the IRGC and IRGQ genes. The figures indicate distances from the centromere in megabases. The locations of three further syntenic markers are given. Gene orientation is given by black arrows. (b) Complex synteny relationship between human chromosome 5 and mouse chromosomes 11 and 18 in the regions containing the mouse Irg genes. Figures indicate distances from the centromere in megabases. The locations of IRG genes are shown in the yellow panels. Positions of diagnostic syntenic markers are also indicated. Syntenic blocks are given in full color, and the rest is shaded.
