Fig. (3) Synteny analysis for zbmp3 with human BMP3. Zebrafish and human bmp3 genomic loci were analyzed and their neighbor genes were listed in order of occurrence in zebrafish and human genomes. Shared neighbor genes were linked between zebrafish and humans to reveal evolutionary conservation of this specifc genomic locus. The bmp3 gene is indicated by a black background on zebrafish chromosome 5 and human chromosome 4.
