Many vertebrates have two olfactory systems such as the main olfactory organ and the vomeronasal organ. To compare the transduction mechanism in both systems, we measured adenylyl cyclase activity in turtle vomeronasal and olfactory epithelium preparations. Whereas forskolin and GTP induced cAMP accumulation in vomeronasal preparations, common odorants, which induced cAMP accumulation in olfactory preparations and electrophysiological responses in vomeronasal organs, did not induce cAMP… CONTINUE READING
