Table 4 Number of OBPs and CSPs expressed in each tissue at > 50 FPKM in females

From: Comparative genomics and transcriptomics in ants provide new insights into the evolution and function of odorant binding and chemosensory proteins

  antennae head bodies legs
OBPs 8 (5) 6 (1) 6 (1) 5 (0)
CSPs 8 (3) 7 (0) 6 (1) 8 (2*)
  1. Numbers in parentheses are the numbers of genes specifically expressed in that tissue (i.e. significantly higher in that tissue than in all other tissues; see Figure 4).
  2. *One CSP (CbirCsp2) is specifically expressed in legs and therefore contributes to the count in parentheses, but is expressed at less than 50 FPKM in legs and so does not contribute to the count of genes expressed in legs.
