Elementary receptor currents elicited by a single pheromone molecule exhibit quantal composition

Abstract

Responses to single pheromone molecules, elementary receptor currents (ERC), recorded from antennal olfactory receptor neurones of the moth Bombyx mori were studied in situ, at the opened sensilla, using the voltage-clamp technique in transepithelial recordings. The amplitude parameters of the ERCs eliciting one action potential in the bombykol and bombykal… (More)
