  • In situ hybridization data are shown for six TAAR probes.

  • aM. mulatta: Animals 6, 9, 10, 11, and 13; M. nemestrina: Animals 8 and 12.

  • bDensity of hybridized neurons in OE after overcounting correction and given as labeled cells/mm2 OE surface area, Avg ± SEM. Total density assuming 51% OCAM+ (see Materials and Methods). TAAR/animal combinations with <20 cells are not included. The estimated total OSN cell density is 18,590 (see Materials and Methods).
