Table 1 Relationship of EGO orthologs between selected Affymetrix GeneChips

From: Orthologous gene-expression profiling in multi-species models: search for candidate genes

GeneChip Reference genes on U133A Orthologs for reference genes Reference gene ortholog pairs
U95A 11,437 9,677 15,545
U74A 7,665 6,013 10,346
U34A 4,872 4,630 7,786
  1. The number of orthologs linked to the U133A arrays is lower than the number of reference genes because of the same ortholog being shared by different reference genes. The number of reference gene ortholog pairs is always higher than the number of reference genes itself; this is attributed to the multiple orthologs for the common reference genes (see Figure 4).
