The nature of the olfactory receptor in crustaceans, a major group of arthropods, has remained elusive. We report that spiny lobsters, Panulirus argus, express ionotropic receptors (IRs), the insect chemosensory variants of ionotropic glutamate receptors. Unlike insects IRs, which are expressed in a specific subset of olfactory cells, two lobster IR subunits are expressed in most, if not all, lobster olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs), as confirmed by antibody labeling and in situ hybridization… Expand
Expression of ionotropic receptors in terrestrial hermit crab's olfactory sensory neurons
TLDR
It is shown that this orphan receptor subgroup with presumably non-olfactory function in insects is likely the basis of olfaction in terrestrial hermit crabs. Expand
Evolution, developmental expression and function of odorant receptors in insects
TLDR
A review of the understanding of the origins of the olfactory system in insects, the mechanisms of Olfactory receptor fate determination, and the extraordinary diversity of behavioral responses to chemical cues is reviewed. Expand
Single cell transcriptomes reveal expression patterns of chemoreceptor genes in olfactory sensory neurons of the Caribbean spiny lobster, Panulirus argus
TLDR
An initial view of the combinatorial expression patterns of receptor molecules in single OSNs in one species of decapod crustacean is provided, including receptors directly involved in olfactory transduction and others likely involved in modulation. Expand
The role of the coreceptor Orco in insect olfactory transduction
TLDR
In situ studies in hawkmoths falsify the hypothesis that Orco underlies odorant-induced ionotropic signal transduction in all insect species, and suggest Orco forms a metabotropically gated, slow cation channel which controls odorant response threshold and kinetics of the sensory neuron. Expand
Chemoreceptor proteins in the Caribbean spiny lobster, Panulirus argus: Expression of Ionotropic Receptors, Gustatory Receptors, and TRP channels in two chemosensory organs and brain
TLDR
While the function of IRs, TRP channels, and the GR was not explored, the results suggest that P. argus has an abundance of diverse putative chemoreceptor proteins that it may use in chemoreception. Expand
Insect Olfactory Receptors
TLDR
The roles of the three known families of insect olfactory receptors are described: odorant receptors (Ors), ionotropic receptors (Irs), and CO2-sensitive gustatory receptors (Grs). Expand
Comparison of transcriptomes from two chemosensory organs in four decapod crustaceans reveals hundreds of candidate chemoreceptor proteins
TLDR
The results show that decapod crustaceans express an abundance of genes for chemoreceptor proteins of different types, phylogenetic conservation, and expression patterns. Expand
Variant Ionotropic Receptors Are Expressed in Olfactory Sensory Neurons of Coeloconic Sensilla on the Antenna of the Desert Locust (Schistocerca gregaria)
TLDR
The genes of S. gregaria which encode homologues of co-receptors for the variant ionotropic receptors, the subtypes IR8a and IR25a are identified and support the notion that the antenna of the desert locust employs two different populations of OSNs to sense odors; cells which express IRs in sensilla coeloconica and cells whichexpress ORs in Sensilla basiconica and sensilla trichodea.

Insights into the olfactory system of the ectoparasite Caligus rogercresseyi: molecular characterization and gene transcription analysis of novel ionotropic receptors.
TLDR
Novel transcripts involved in the olfactory system of Caligus rogercresseyi are found, in addition to the transcriptomic patterns expressed during different stages of salmon lice development, providing novel elements towards understanding the host-finding process of the salmon louse C. rogersseyi. Expand
Putative chemosensory receptors are differentially expressed in the sensory organs of male and female crown-of-thorns starfish, Acanthaster planci
TLDR
This study reveals the presence of putative variant Ionotropic Receptors (IRs) which are differentially expressed in the olfactory organs of COTS which are likely to be species-specific with novel ligand-binding affinity and a diverse range of functions. Expand

Variant Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors as Chemosensory Receptors in Drosophila
TLDR
Conservation of IR/iGluR-related proteins in bacteria, plants, and animals suggests that this receptor family represents an evolutionarily ancient mechanism for sensing both internal and external chemical cues. Expand
Ancient Protostome Origin of Chemosensory Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors and the Evolution of Insect Taste and Olfaction
TLDR
It is shown that IRs are expressed in olfactory organs across Protostomia—a major branch of the animal kingdom that encompasses arthropods, nematodes, and molluscs—indicating that they represent an ancestral protostome chemosensory receptor family. Expand
Functional Architecture of Olfactory Ionotropic Glutamate Receptors
TLDR
This work demonstrates that IRs act in combinations of up to three subunits, comprising individual odor-specific receptors and one or two broadly expressed coreceptors, and provides insights into the conserved and distinct architecture of these olfactory and synaptic ion channels. Expand
Primary culture of lobster (Homarus americanus) olfactory sensory neurons.
TLDR
It is discovered that acetylcholinesterase acted as a growth factor for these cells, improving their survival in culture and confirming previous evidence from spiny lobsters that poly-D-lysine was a superior substrate for olfactory cells of this size and morphology. Expand
Lobster olfactory genomics.
TLDR
Genomics and physiological genomics approaches were instrumental in the discovery of a new exocrine gland, the aesthetasc tegumental gland, which is linked to grooming and the prevention of fouling of the olfactory aesthetASC setae and suggest a previously unknown endocrine or paracrine function performed by auxiliary cells of the Olfactory aesthetics sensory units.

Gene expression and specificity in the mature zone of the lobster olfactory organ.
TLDR
To facilitate study of the molecular basis of olfaction in lobsters, a subtracted cDNA library was made from the mature zone of the olfactory organ of Homarus americanus, the American lobster to identify candidate genes responsible for known functions and suggest new functions not previously recognized in the o aroma organ.

Controversy and consensus: noncanonical signaling mechanisms in the insect olfactory system
TLDR
A consensus model for a noncanonical mechanism of olfactory signal transduction in insects is offered and it is suggested that insect odorant receptors are G-protein-coupled receptors or odor-gated ion channels. Expand
Drosophila odorant receptors are both ligand-gated and cyclic-nucleotide-activated cation channels
TLDR
It is shown that application of odorants to mammalian cells co-expressing Or22a and Or83b results in non-selective cation currents activated by means of an ionotropic and a metabotropic pathway, and a subsequent increase in the intracellular Ca2+ concentration. Expand

Being able to record from many ORNs simultaneously over an extended period of time not only allows more accurate estimates of neuronal population activity but also dramatically improves the ability to identify potential new functional subpopulations of ORNs, especially those with more subtle differences in responsiveness, ligand specificity, and/or transduction mechanisms.
