We have isolated nine putative odorant receptor genes from the chick, named COR1 to COR9, that belong to the large multigene family of olfactory G protein-coupled receptors found in the fish, rat, mouse, dog, and human. By combining genomic DNA blot analysis, low stringency library screenings, and several PCR analyses, we were able to detect approximately 20 COR genes in the chick genome highly related to COR1-9. By in situ hybridization of newborn and adult, COR expression was detected only in… CONTINUE READING
