Introduction In rodents, the olfactory system is segregated into the main olfactory epithelium (OE) and into the vomeronasal organ (VNO), the former populated by ciliated olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) expressing the G-protein subunit Gα olf and OR-type odorant receptor molecules , the latter housing microvillous receptor neurons (VRNs) expressing Gα o and Gα i and V1R, V2R and V3R receptor molecules. Projections of ORNs and VRNs target distinct areas in the olfactory bulb (OB) and the… CONTINUE READING
