Conserved synteny of the rhodanese superfamily in vertebrates. Chromosomal regions carrying Tst and Mpst genes in the species considered in this analysis were compared, and neighbouring genes with conserved synteny were identified. Horizontal lines denote orthologous relationships. Each gene is represented as a horizontal line on the chromosome. Neighbouring genes that are in synteny are shown with a schematic indication of their orientation and distance (not to scale). Ancestral states of the Tst and Mpst chromosomal positions in Amniota and Tetrapoda were reconstructed from comparisons of syntenic positions between multiple vertebrate lineages
