Identification of neuromedin S and its possible role in the mammalian circadian oscillator system
The discovery of neuropeptides has resulted in an increased understanding of novel regulatory mechanisms of certain physiological phenomena. Here we identify a novel neuropeptide of 36 amino‐acidExpand

Structure and function of the antennal sensilla of the palm weevil Rhynchophorus palmarum (Coleoptera, Curculionidae).
The distribution, fine structure and function of the sensilla present on the antennal club of Rhynchophorus palmarum were studied. No sex dimorphism was observed. Scanning and transmission electronExpand

Sex-specific triacylglycerides are widely conserved in Drosophila and mediate mating behavior
Pheromones play an important role in the behavior, ecology, and evolution of many organisms. The structure of many insect pheromones typically consists of a hydrocarbon backbone, occasionallyExpand

The identification of attractive volatiles in aged male mouse urine.
In many species, older males are often preferred mates because they carry "good" genes that account for their viability. In some animals, including mice, which rely heavily on chemical communication,Expand

Revision of the absolute configuration of a-factor : The inducer of streptomycin biosynthesis, basing on the reconfirmed (R)-configuration of (+)-paraconic acid
Abstract (+)-Paraconic acid was shown to be of (R)-configuration by its four-step conversion to (R)-(+)-3-methyl-4-butanolide. The absolute configuration at C-3 of A-factorExpand

Gypsy moth field trapping and electroantennogram studies with pheromone enantiomers
Abstract Traps baited with (7 R , 8 S )- cis -7,8-epoxy-2-methyloctadecane [(+)-disparlure, >98% optical purity] were significantly more attractive to male gypsy moths, Lymantria dispar , than trapsExpand

Spatial arrangement of glomerular molecular-feature clusters in the odorant-receptor class domains of the mouse olfactory bulb.
The glomerular layer of the mammalian olfactory bulb (OB) forms odorant receptor (OR) maps. Each OR map is structurally and functionally compartmentalized into zones (dorsal and ventral) and domainsExpand

Neuronal protein NP25 interacts with F-actin
Neuronal protein NP25 is a neuron-specific protein present in highly differentiated neural cells, but its functional properties have not been well characterized. NP25 shows high amino acid sequenceExpand
