Figure 5

Matrix dot plot of periostin nucleotide sequences from the C-terminal region of zebrafish locus 1 (horizontal) versus locus 2 (vertical). Exon sizes and boundaries are indicated in either dimension, with locus 2 exons downstream of 18=19 marked here provisionally as a - g. The dot plot shows the 39 nucleotide repeat pattern within exon 18=19 and also reveals similarities to the repeat within locus 2 exons b, c, d as well as a correspondence (probable homology) of locus 1 exon 21 to locus 2 exon e (partial). Weaker reverse-complement similarities are also visible.
