In insects, olfaction plays a crucial role in many behavioral contexts, such as locating food, sexual partners, and oviposition sites. To successfully perform such behaviors, insects must respond to chemical stimuli at the right moment. Insects modulate their olfactory system according to their physiological state upon interaction with their environment. Here, we review the plasticity of behavioral responses to different odor types according to age, feeding state, circadian rhythm, and mating…

Olfactory Plasticity: Variation in the Expression of Chemosensory Receptors in Bactrocera dorsalis in Different Physiological States
TLDR
The study suggests that the expressions of chemosensory receptors change to adapt to different physiological states, which may indicate the significant role of these receptors in such physiological processes.
Molecular Mechanism of Insect Olfaction: Olfactory Receptors
TLDR
Current information about the primary processes of odor sensing in insects is compiled, concentrating on the molecular identity and functional implications of olfactory receptors in the recognition and the transduction of odorant and pheromone signals.
Chemosensory systems in predatory mites: from ecology to genome
TLDR
This review provides a guide in the field from chemoecology of herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) as early as 1980s to the advances made in comparative genomics of predatory mites in 2019, and suggests three directions for future research.
Unique neural coding of crucial versus irrelevant plant odors in a hawkmoth
TLDR
This study suggests that female moths possess unique neural coding strategies to find not only conspicuous floral cues but also inconspicuous bouquets of larval host plants within a complex olfactory landscape.
Plasticity and modulation of olfactory circuits in insects
TLDR
Findings on olfactory plasticity and modulation in various model and non-model insects with an emphasis on moths and social Hymenoptera are highlighted, finding plasticity in Olfactory circuits is linked to associative learning and memory formation.
Molecular characterization and expression variation of the odorant receptor co-receptor in the Formosan subterranean termite
TLDR
The study reveals the molecular characteristics of Orco in a termite, and the results suggest a link between olfactory sensitivity and nutritional status and further studies are warranted to better understand the role of Or co-receptor inOlfactory plasticity and behavioral response.
Diversity and Molecular Evolution of Odorant Receptor in Hemipteran Insects
TLDR
Olfaction is a critical physiologic process for insects to interact with the environment, especially plant-emitted volatiles, during which odorant receptors (ORs) play an essential role in host recognition.
Modulation of odour-guided behaviour in mosquitoes
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of how intrinsic factors affect the attraction to plants and feeding on plant fluids, host seeking, blood feeding, supplemental feeding behaviours, pre-oviposition behaviour, and oviposition in female mosquitoes.
Molecular Profiling of the Drosophila Antenna Reveals Conserved Genes Underlying Olfaction in Insects
TLDR
This work transcriptionally profiled Drosophila melanogaster amos mutants that lack trichoid and basiconic sensilla and identified 187 genes whose expression is enriched in these sensilla, including pickpocket ion channels and neuromodulator GPCRs that could mediate signaling pathways unique to single-walled sensilla.

Molecular basis of peripheral olfactory plasticity in Rhodnius prolixus, a Chagas disease vector
TLDR

Olfactory sensitivity in tsetse flies: a daily rhythm.
TLDR
The organism tones down the sensitivity of its odour receptors during periods of anticipated inactivity for reasons of economy, resulting in the first instance of a daily modulation in the sense of smell.
Experience-based modulation of behavioural responses to plant volatiles and other sensory cues in insect herbivores.
TLDR

TLDR
In the Mediterranean fruit fly, virgin females are preferentially attracted to the volatile male pheromone over host fruit odors, suggesting a male role in modulation of female olfactory-driven behaviors.
