Table 2 Gene ontology classification of PTC genes.

From: Genome-wide analysis of chimpanzee genes with premature termination codons

Ontology Overrepresented GO term in the PTC dataset Number of PTC genes in the GO category* Adjusted p-value
Molecular function Olfactory receptor activity (GO:0004984) 46 1*10-6
Biological process Sensory perception of smell (GO:0007608) 46 3*10-7
Biological process G-protein coupled receptor protein signaling pathway (GO:0007186) 82 2*10-5
  1. * Note that the GO terms overlap. The two groups olfactory receptor activity and sensory perception of smell are identical and these 46 genes are in turn included in the group G-protein coupled receptor activity.
