A three-way comparison of human, chimpanzee and orangutan OR symbols. a. Examples of how one can use the nomenclature to compare the primate OR repertoires. Symbols that are found in all three primates are in orange boxes, missing symbols are in green boxes (putative deletions), and symbols that are duplicated in one of the species are in dark orange (putative duplications). The “P” suffix stands for pseudogene. The “W” suffix in the OR8B1W symbol indicates that this is one of many orthologs of OR8B1. Additional OR8B1 orthologs with suffixes B-V in their symbols were identified in non-primate species. b. A Venn diagram summarizing the comparison result. Numbers in white refer to OR gene count in human
