Interspecies comparison of cellular localization of the cyanide metabolizing enzyme rhodanese within olfactory mucosa.

Abstract

The observation of high levels of xenobiotic metabolizing enzyme activity in the olfactory mucosa has produced speculation on the functional significance of these enzymes in the nose. Hypothesized roles include protection of the nasal epithelium, lung, and other downstream tissues, and termination or modification of olfactory responses. The enzyme rhodanese… (More)
