Diversification of olfactory receptor genes in the Japanese medaka fish, Oryzias latipes.

Abstract

Vertebrate olfactory receptors (OR) exists as the largest multigene family, scattered throughout the genome in clusters. Studies have shown that different animals possess remarkably diverse set of OR genes to recognize diverse odor molecules. In order to examine the evolutionary process of OR diversification, we examined three OR gene subfamilies from… (More)
