Predicted structure of CATHL8 . Genomic DNA corresponding to the putative cathelicidin, CATHL8, was retrieved using BLAST-like Alignment Tool (BLAT) at the University of California, Santa Cruz genome browser (http://genome.ucsc.edu) and used for prediction of intron/ exon boundaries using GenScan (http://genes.mit.edu/GENSCAN.html). The coding sequence is in uppercase letters, noncoding sequences are in lowercase letters. The deduced amino acid sequence of the open reading frame is indicated in single letter code and the stop codon is indicated by an x. The TATA-box signal is in bold and underlined and the polyadenylation signal is in bold and double underlined. Line numbers represent genomic co-ordinates on the BosTau7 assembly.
