Olfactory systems sense and respond to various odorants. Olfactory receptors, which in most organisms are G protein (heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide–binding protein)–coupled receptors, directly bind volatile or soluble odorants. Compared to the genomes of mammals, the genome of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans contains more putative olfactory receptor genes, suggesting that in nematodes there may be combinatorial complexity to the receptor-odor relationship. We used RNA interference (RNAi… CONTINUE READING
