Ecdysteroid regulation of olfactory protein expression in the developing antenna of the tobacco hawk moth, Manduca sexta.


During adult metamorphosis, the moth olfactory neurons and their glia-like support cells pass through a coordinated and synchronous development. By 60% of development, the olfactory system is anatomically complete, but functional maturation does not occur until about 90% of development. Maturation is characterized by the onset of odorant sensitivity in the… (More)
