Fig. 5

Synteny plot of SCGR1-6 genes and SCAs genes between L. major Friedlin and L. infantum JPCM5 located on chromosome 2. Each gene is depicted as an arrow (where direction reflects gene orientation), and the connecting gray segments indicates sequence conservation (nucleotide identity ≥ 90%) between L. infantum and L. major genomic contexts. While SCA1 (blue-colored) appears as a single-copy gene in L. infantum, located between SCGR2 and SCGR1, it appears duplicated in L. major
