Figure 3

Reconciled tree for the UCP gene family. The ML tree of UCP genes was reconciled using GeneTree with a species tree. Squares indicate duplication events, grey lines indicate absent genes, either lost from those species or not yet sequenced. An asterisk represents a postulated loss due to incomplete genome sequences. The schematic gene maps of the conserved syntenic regions of the uncoupling proteins according to the study of Emre et al [10].
