Large multi-chromosomal duplications encompass many members of the olfactory receptor gene family in the human genome.

Abstract

The human genome contains thousands of genes that encode a diverse repertoire of odorant receptors (ORs). We report here on the identification and chromosomal localization of 74 OR-containing genomic clones. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), we demonstrate a striking homology among a set of approximately 20 OR locations, illustrating a… (More)
