I think it is an error in our pipeline to miss the orthology link
between Ccr5 to CCR5.
With our current pipelines, we are unfortunately unable to force given
genes to be orthologous, which would fix the issue. We are working on
having this feature, but it won't be available before next year.
In the meantime, I am afraid such discrepancies in the data cannot be
If you look at the whole tree, among the 22 human genes: CXCR1 and CXCR2
on one side, and CCR2 and CCR5 on the other side are mixed up.
Otherwise, all the human and mouse genes are grouped together correctly.
In both cases, the order of the duplications at the root of mammals is
not clear, and as a result, the definition of the sub-families is
partially wrong for the human and mouse members (it is correct for other
Sorry for the inconvenience,
