  1. The locations of the different K+-channel genes are shown for Anopheles gambiae and Drosophila melanogaster. Bold type is used for those cases in which inter arm homology is conserved for the orthologs. *The Anopheles chromosomal maps are still in their early stages of annotation, making designations more general (estimated) than for Drosophila.
