notes on synteny and gene evolution/function

source: Yamamoto et al 2023 [1]

synteny patterns " around Hs6st1 genes are well conserved around the [Xla.hs6st1.L] gene and the X. tropicalis hs6st1 gene. However, three [S homeolog] genes, uggt1.S, sh3yl1.S, cep19.S, were lost from the Xla.S chromosome (see Fig. S5A).

uggt1.L and sh3yl1.L, show expression levels similar to hs6st1.L (see Figs. S5B and D). Because these two genes are located nearer the hs6st1.L locus than to cep19.L, it is suggested that hs6st1.L, uggt1.L, and sh3yl1.L, share cis-regulatory modules, and that these genomic regions were lost or changed during Xla.S chromosome evolution, leading to a change in hs6st1.S expression pattern."
