Sensory neurons of the vomeronasal organ (VNO) detect volatile chemicals that are released by conspecific animals and convey information about social and reproductive behavior. The signal transduction pathway in vomeronasal receptor neurons (VRNs) is not known in detail, but is believed to be distinct from that of the sensory neurons of the main olfactory system. Many of the identified olfactory transduction components are not expressed by VRNs. Using Ca2+ imaging and electrophysiological… CONTINUE READING
