Loss of function of the ciliopathy protein Cc2d2a disorganizes the vesicle fusion machinery at the periciliary membrane and indirectly affects Rab8 trafficking in zebrafish photoreceptors

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5760100
PMID: 29281629
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007150

[…] Synteny analysis was done using the synteny database ( []. Parameters were adjusted to a sliding window size of 50, and several genes in the vicinity of rab8b were used for additional syntenic co […]


Phylogenetic and Molecular Evolutionary Analysis of Mitophagy Receptors under Hypoxic Conditions

[…] The Ohnologs database is a repository of paralogous genes retained from WGDs (i.e., ohnologs) in the vertebrate genomes (Singh et al., ) ( The Synteny Database (Catchen et al., ) ( is an automated system to identify conserved syntenic regions produced from WGD. NIX and BNIP3 were housed in the Ohnolog […]


Evolutionary divergence of the vertebrate TNFAIP8 gene family: Applying the spotted gar orthology bridge to understand ohnolog loss in teleosts

[…] le at Ensembl under accession ENSGT00500000044795. The tree in presents data after the collapse of large clades while retaining rayfin fish genes shown in detail. Conserved Synteny analysis used the Synteny Database (, ). […]


Down regulation of coasy, the gene associated with NBIA VI, reduces Bmp signaling, perturbs dorso ventral patterning and alters neuronal development in zebrafish

Sci Rep

[…] on the Zv10 (Sept 2014) Danio rerio assembly and the Ensembl zebrafish genome database ( analysis was achieved using the Synteny Database. Nucleotide and amino acid sequences were compared to the non-redundant sequences present at the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) using the Basic Local Alignment S […]


Evolutionary and developmental analysis reveals KANK genes were co opted for vertebrate vascular development

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4904190
PMID: 27292017
DOI: 10.1038/srep27816
call_split See protocol

[…] :// Gene intron-exon structures were analyzed using the longest transcripts in Ensembl. The synteny of KANK genes were analyzed using Ensembl, UCSC genome browser, Synteny Database and Genomicus browser. Protein domain analysis was carried out using the SMART online tool. […]
