Latest Olfactory receptor Stories
Many people have difficulty processing everyday sensory information. This is usually called having sensory integration difficulties such as those with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
ALBANY, N.Y., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An international team of scientists led by University at Albany Distinguished Professor of Chemistry Eric Block, have demonstrated
Olfactory Biosciences is just in time to deliver affordable non-prescription natural medicines that are topically applied, so that the consumer can have self-help for most common conditions.
New research from the University of California, Davis has identified the precise odorant receptor in mosquitoes that bonds with DEET and results in the bugs being repelled, according to a new study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In a study published this week in Genome Research, researchers examined the olfactory receptor (OR) repertoire encoded in 13 mammalian species and found that African elephants have the largest number of OR genes ever characterized.
Scientists from the Technische Universität München and the German Research Center for Food Chemistry performed a meta-analysis on the odorant patterns of 227 different food samples to try and understand why and how a certain food smells the way it does.
To accommodate a lifetime of scents and aromas, mammals have hundreds of genes that each produce a different odorant receptor.
The human nose expresses nearly 400 odorant receptors, which allow us to distinguish a large number of scents.
Odorant receptors of recent insects evolved long after insects migrated from water to land.
For decades, experts have claimed that people were capable of detecting 10,000 different odors, but new research appearing in March 21 edition of Science suggests that the actual number of scents detectable by the human nose is considerably higher.
