Our study was designed to examine how components of complex mixtures can inhibit the binding of other components to receptor sites in the olfactory system of the spiny lobster Panulirus argus. Biochemical binding assays were used to study how two- to six-component mixtures inhibit binding of the radiolabeled odorants taurine, L-glutamate and(More)
The responsiveness of chemoreceptor neurons depends on a combination of perireceptor and receptor events. Olfactory neurons of crustaceans are packaged into distinctive cuticular sensilla called aesthetascs. The cuticle of aesthetascs is thin and permeable, even though it does not contain any obvious surface pores or pore tubules. This suggests that this(More)
