We show that lobster olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs), much like their vertebrate counterparts, generate a transient elevation of intracellular calcium (Ca(i)) in response to odorant activation that can be used to monitor ensemble ORN activity. This is done in antennal slice preparation in situ maintaining the polarity of the cells and the normal micro-environment of the olfactory cilia. The Ca(i) signal is ligand-specific and increases in a dose-dependent manner in response to odorant… Expand
Cellular Basis for Response Diversity in the Olfactory Periphery
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lobster ORNs show tonic excitation, tonic inhibition, phaso-tonicexcitation, and bursting, and that these patterns are faithfully reflected in the calcium signal. Expand
Mechanisms underlying odorant-induced and spontaneous calcium signals in olfactory receptor neurons of spiny lobsters, Panulirus argus
TLDR
The results corroborate the conclusion that odorant-induced Ca2+ transients and spontaneous Ca2- oscillations in the somata of olfactory receptor neurons closely reflect action potential activity associated with odoran-induced phasic-tonic responses and spontaneous bursting, respectively. Expand
Ionotropic Crustacean Olfactory Receptors
TLDR
It is reported that spiny lobsters, Panulirus argus, express ionotropic receptors (IRs), the insect chemosensory variants of ionotropic glutamate receptors, which are the only type of olfactory receptor that is detected in spiny lobsterOlfactory tissue, suggesting that they likely mediate Olfactory signaling. Expand
Neurally Encoding Time for Olfactory Navigation
TLDR
This work uses recurrence theory to show that information about position relative to the source of the odor plume is embedded in the timing between odor pulses, and suggests a mechanism for extracting and encoding temporal information from the sensory environment that could have broad utility for neural information processing. Expand
Ligand-selective activation of heterologously-expressed mammalian olfactory receptor.
TLDR
It is argued that the mouse eugenol OR (mOR-EG), when heterologously expressed, can couple to two different signaling pathways in a ligand selective manner, and the challenge now is to determine the potential of mOR-eg, and perhaps other ORs, to activate multiple signaling pathwaysIn a lig and selective manner in native ORNs.

Adult Neurogenesis in the Spiny Lobster, Panulirus Argus: Molecular, Cellular, and Physiological Changes of Olfactory Receptor Neurons
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the physiological response properties of adult-born ORNs changed with functional maturation, and suggests that splash plays multiple roles in the olfactory organ of adult spiny lobsters. Expand
Function and regulation of insect olfactory receptors
TLDR
The role of the ubiquitous Ca2+ binding protein calmodulin (CaM) in insect OR function is investigated and a conserved putative CaM binding motif 336SAIKYWVER344 in the second intracellular loop of Orco protein indicates an important functional role. Expand
Calmodulin modulates insect odorant receptor function.
TLDR
Ca(2+) responses elicited in Drosophila olfactory sensory neurons by stimulation with the synthetic OR agonist VUAA1 were reduced and prolonged by CaM inhibition with the potent antagonist W7 but not with the weak antagonist W5. Expand
Phosphoinositide-3-Kinase Is the Primary Mediator of Phosphoinositide-Dependent Inhibition in Mammalian Olfactory Receptor Neurons
TLDR
It is concluded that PLC does not make a measurable independent contribution to odor-evoked inhibition, and that PI3K is the primary mediator of PI-dependent inhibition in mammalian ORNs. Expand
Quantifying bursting neuron activity from calcium signals using blind deconvolution
TLDR
This work proposes a method using blind calcium signal deconvolution based on an information-theoretic approach to maximise the output entropy of a nonlinear filter where the nonlinearity is defined by the cumulative distribution function of the spike signal. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis that the ORNs are arranged in a functional mosaic is tested, using an intact epithelial preparation from the mouse, in which odor responses of many ORNs in situ can be monitored simultaneously with calcium imaging techniques, supporting the combinatorial coding of odor quality and intensity by different ORN subsets.

Two-Photon Calcium Imaging Reveals an Odor-Evoked Map of Activity in the Fly Brain
TLDR
A sensitive imaging system in the Drosophila brain that couples two-photon microscopy with the specific expression of the calcium-sensitive fluorescent protein, G-CaMP is developed, demonstrating that the response pattern of a given glomerulus is a function of the specificity of a single odorant receptor.

Stimulation of olfactory receptors alters regulation of [Cai] in olfactory neurons of the catfish (Ictalurus punctatus)
TLDR
Intracellular calcium was measured in single olfactory neurons from the channel catfish using the fluorescent Ca2+ indicator fura 2 and it is found that pretreatment with papain does not alter specific binding ofl-alanine andl-arginine to Olfactory receptor sites in isolated olf factory cilia.

The methodology established in this study is a powerful tool to visualize spatial distributions of odorant responsive neurons at a cellular resolution, and to construct odor maps in a coronal view of the olfactory epithelium. Expand
Classes and Narrowing Selectivity of Olfactory Receptor Neurons of Xenopus laevis Tadpoles
TLDR
Calcium imaging experiments in slices of the olfactory mucosa of Xenopus laevis tadpoles are reported on, showing that shape and duration of amino acid-elicited [Ca2+]i transients showed a high degree of similarity upon repeated stimulation with the same amino acid, however, different amino acids led to clearly distinguishable calcium responses in individual ORNs.

Selectivity and response characteristics of human olfactory neurons.
TLDR
The results suggest the presence of a previously unreported type of olfactory transduction mechanism, and raise the possibility that coding of odor qualities in humans may be accomplished to some degree differently than in other vertebrates, with the Olfactory neuron itself making a greater contribution to the discrimination process.

Cell-attached recordings of action potentials followed by current-clamp recordings in the same cell indicate that depolarizing and hyperpolarizing responses were associated with increases (excitation) and decreases (inhibition) in action potential frequency, respectively. Expand
