Our knowledge of the molecular basis of odorant reception in insects has grown exponentially over the past decade. Odorant… Expand From worm to man, many odorant signals are perceived by the binding of volatile ligands to odorant receptors that belong to the G… Expand Drosophila olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) each express two odorant receptors (ORs): a divergent member of the OR family and the… Expand Fruit flies are attracted by a diversity of odors that signal the presence of food, potential mates, or attractive egg-laying… Expand Although insects have proven to be valuable models for exploring the function, organization, and development of the olfactory… Expand We adapted the technique of intrinsic signal imaging to visualize how odorant concentration and structure are represented… Expand Candidate mammalian odorant receptors were first cloned some 6 years ago. The physiological function of these receptors in… Expand Olfaction is a versatile and sensitive mechanism for detecting volatile odorants. We show that the nematode C. elegans detects… Expand The mechanisms by which mammals discriminate a vast array of diverse odors are poorly understood. To gain insight into the… Expand The mammalian olfactory system can recognize and discriminate a large number of different odorant molecules. The detection of… Expand
