Question: How can multiarray results have more than 1 gene name for each row?

I am currently looking at a paper that are using a panel of 357 genes to test some illness. I want to retrieve the list of these 357 genes to make some own analyses in my own data-set (RNA-seq experiment)

However, when I look at the list of genes that they provided, the list has 357 rows, which seems correct, but some of the rows have more than one gene name, example below:

  • GBP2
  • CTSS
  • PVRIG /// STAG3

What does this third item mean? I will have to translate the genes into orthologues in another species, and inputing two genes like this, separated with "///" won't work. Which one of them should I choose, or maybe both?

Looking at the human genome, you can see that those two genes are very closed , maybe they are regulated by the same elements (always co-expressed ?) that could explain why they put them together ? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/10734
