Table 2 Comparisons between fish and human orthologs

From: Constructing a fish metabolic network model

Species Extra duplicated genes (%) Extra duplicated metabolic genes (%)
Zebrafish 15.4 0.6
Medaka 8.9 1.5
Takifugu 12.2 3.8
Tetraodon 14.4 5.8
Stickleback 11.9 4.5
  1. An extra round of genome duplication produced more genes in fish than human. The number of total human orthologs found in a fish species is typically around 12,000, as analyzed from Ensembl data.
