Or83b Encodes a Broadly Expressed Odorant Receptor Essential for Drosophila Olfaction
Variant Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors as Chemosensory Receptors in Drosophila
An Olfactory Sensory Map in the Fly Brain
Atypical Membrane Topology and Heteromeric Function of Drosophila Odorant Receptors In Vivo
It is demonstrated that OR83b heterodimerizes with conventional ORs early in the endomembrane system in OSNs, couples these complexes to the conserved ciliary trafficking pathway, and is essential to maintain the OR/OR83b complex within the sensory cilia, where odor signal transduction occurs.
Two-Photon Calcium Imaging Reveals an Odor-Evoked Map of Activity in the Fly Brain
Molecular architecture of smell and taste in Drosophila.
A critical review of the recent literature in smell and taste studies in Drosophila is provided to provide broad insights into the problem of sensory coding.

Evidence is provided that heteromeric insect ORs comprise a new class of ligand-activated non-selective cation channels and the fast response kinetics and OR-subunit-dependent K+ ion selectivity of the insect OR complex support the hypothesis that the complex between OR and Or83b itself confers channel activity.
An essential role for a CD36-related receptor in pheromone detection in Drosophila
A unifying model for CD36 function is defined, coupling recognition of lipid-based extracellular ligands to signalling receptors in both pheromonal communication and pathogen recognition through the innate immune system.
