This is the community wiki page for the gene alg13 please feel free to add any information that is relevant to this gene that is not already captured elsewhere in Xenbase
This gene was assessed by David Webb at NCBI 11.27.2019
Based on synteny analaysis this is the true alg13 ortholog with GeneID: 100145625, which consistently resides in this pattern in tetrapods: PAK3>...CAPN6<...DCX<...ALG13>...TRPC5>... ...LHFPL1<
The true alg13 (GeneID: 100145625) gene page was created with this accession: XB-GENEPAGE-22172431, gene name: ALG13, UDP-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase subunit
Subsequently, GeneID: 549862 , ag13l on XB-GENEPAGE-5852382 symbol was changed from alg13 to alg13l, and the name changed to ALG13, UDP-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase subunit-like.
Synteny analysis shows that ag13l resides in this pattern TAT>... ...CHST4>..."ALG13">...ATXN1L>...ZNF821<...IST1> , on Chromsome 4.
Note that ag13l seems to be unique to Xenopus, as Nanorana parkeri and caecilians seem to lack it.
