gene model and synteny notes
In X. tropicalis v9.1 and v10 slc5a8.1 is on Chromosome 3, in the following gene order: [proc] muc1>anno4> [prov]slc5a8.2< slc5a8.1> utp20> arl1< spic>
A second slc5a8 gene is annotated on Chr 10, but although this is not present in the v10 annotation, it remains in the Xenbase liftover genome On Chr 10, it is in this gene order: dynilrb1< itch< asip< slc5a8> Xetrov90025423m.g> raly<
both the Chr3 and Chr10 gene link back to the same scl5a8.1 Xenbase gene page, from JBrowse.
