Cultured lobster olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) were surveyed for their odor sensitivity with whole-cell, voltage-clamp recording. The nature of the adequate stimuli, the degree of tuning (response spectra) of the cells, the threshold of sensitivity and the dual polarity of the odor-evoked currents are consistent with chemosensitivity in the cultured ORNs being olfactory. The ability of odors to evoke currents in cultured ORNs that lack processes suggests that lobster ORNs can be induced in… CONTINUE READING
