Molecular basis of odor coding in the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles gambiae
A systematic functional analysis across much of the conventional Anopheles gambiae odorant receptor (AgOR) repertoire was carried out in Xenopus oocytes using two-electrode, voltage-clampExpand

Odor Coding in the Maxillary Palp of the Malaria Vector Mosquito Anopheles gambiae
BACKGROUND Many species of mosquitoes, including the major malaria vector Anopheles gambiae, utilize carbon dioxide (CO(2)) and 1-octen-3-ol as olfactory cues in host-seeking behaviors that underlieExpand

Odourant reception in the malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae
The mosquito Anopheles gambiae is the major vector of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. It locates its human hosts primarily through olfaction, but little is known about the molecular basis of thisExpand

Distinct Olfactory Signaling Mechanisms in the Malaria Vector Mosquito Anopheles gambiae
A combination of gene silencing and behavioral studies in the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles gambiae sheds light on the olfactory basis of DEET repulsion as well as reveals the role of anotherExpand

Beyond chemoreception: diverse tasks of soluble olfactory proteins in insects
Odorant‐binding proteins (OBPs) and chemosensory proteins (CSPs) are regarded as carriers of pheromones and odorants in insect chemoreception. These proteins are typically located in antennae, mouthExpand

The molecular and cellular basis of olfactory-driven behavior in Anopheles gambiae larvae
The mosquito Anopheles gambiae is the principal Afrotropical vector for human malaria. A central component of its vectorial capacity is the ability to maintain sufficient populations of adults.Expand

Anopheles gambiae TRPA1 is a heat‐activated channel expressed in thermosensitive sensilla of female antennae
Heat sensitivity is a sensory modality that plays a critical role in close‐range host‐seeking behaviors of adult female Anopheles gambiae, the principal Afrotropical vector for human malaria. AnExpand

Functional characterization and immunolocalization of odorant binding protein 1 in the lucerne plant bug, Adelphocoris lineolatus (GOEZE).
In the insect phylum, the relationships between individuals and their environment are often modulated by chemical communication. Odorant binding proteins (OBPs) are widely and robustly expressed inExpand

Mutation of an aminopeptidase N gene is associated with Helicoverpa armigera resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ac toxin.
A Cry1Ac-resistant strain (Bt-R) of Helicoverpa armigera, with 2971-fold resistance, was derived by selection with Cry1Ac toxin for 75 generations. We used cDNA-amplified fragment length polymorphismExpand

Candidate Olfaction Genes Identified within the Helicoverpa armigera Antennal Transcriptome
Antennal olfaction is extremely important for insect survival, mediating key behaviors such as host preference, mate choice, and oviposition site selection. Multiple antennal proteins are involved inExpand
