The figure shows schematic alignment of human-chicken genomic regions. Genes shared by human and chicken are shown as filled triangles, and others as empty triangles. Blue = ORs, red = β-globins, purple = taste receptors, green = ephrin receptors. Cluster names are as in Table 3. (a) Partial conservation of a human class I OR cluster containing β-globin genes (HBB@). Only a sample of the 103 human ORs is shown. The filled triangles were arbitrarily chosen to demonstrate that the 12 chicken ORs were aligned to 12 different locations in this human cluster. (b) Conservation of one human OR gene (OR10AC1P) from CLIC #16 in chicken alongside with partial conservation of syntenic bitter taste (TAS2R39, TAS2R40, TAS2R62P, TAS2R60, TAS2R41) and ephrin receptors (EPHB6, EPHA1).
