Distribution of globin genes in vertebrates. The hexagon indicates hexacoordinate globins, the pentagon pentacoordinate globins. N- and C-terminal extensions are indicated by bars, the acylation of the N-terminus of GbX is shown. Note the duplicated GbX genes in L. chalumnae and the duplicated Cygb genes in the teleosts. Globin sequences were identified in representative vertebrate genomes employing the BLAST algorithm. The genomes of man (Homo sapiens, build 37.3), mouse (Mus musculus build 37.2), opossum (Monodelphis domestica, build 2.2), chicken (Gallus gallus, build 2.1), zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata, build 1.1) and zebrafish (Danio rerio, Zv9) were obtained from the NCBI web site at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/mapview/. The genome data from the coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae, LatCha1), platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus, OANA5), anole (Anolis carolinensis, AnoCar2.0), clawed frog (Xenopus tropicalis, JGI_4.2), pufferfish (Tetraodon nigroviridis, TETRAODON7) and lamprey (Petromyzon marinus, Pmarinus_7.0) derive from http://www.ensembl.org. The elephant shark (Callorhinchus milii) genome data sequences were obtained from http://esharkgenome.imcb.a-star.edu.sg/. Additional information derives from BLAST searches of the non-redundant nucleotide and ESTs databases.
