  1. 1. Gender differences in chemosensory function

    Författare :Jonas Olofsson; Steven Nordin; Mats Olsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of two studies, in which gender differences in nasal chemosensory function are investigated. The first study assesses odor identification ability in a populationbased sample, varying from 45 to 90 yrs, screened for cognitive impairment and severe olfactory dysfunction. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Evolution of olfaction in Lepidoptera and Trichoptera : Gene families and antennal morphology

    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; evolution; pheromone receptors; olfaction; chemosensory; sensillum; HEK 293 cells;

    Sammanfattning : In moths, females produce sex pheromone compounds to attract males over a long distance for mating. The antennae of moths and many other insects have specialized odorant receptors (ORs), called pheromone receptors (PRs), to sense the pheromone compounds and they group in a monophyletic clade (PR clade).

  4. 4. Structure and Function of Odorant Binding Proteins and Chemosensory Proteins in Moths

    Författare :Severine Jansen; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NMR structure; Ecology; Ekologi; Development; Lepidoptera; Odorant Binding Proteins; Chemosensory Proteins;

    Sammanfattning : Odorant Binding Proteins (OBPs) and Chemosensory Proteins (CSPs) are small soluble proteins found in the lymph of insect sensillae located on insect antennae. Odorant Binding proteins are implied in olfaction, by binding hydrophobic odorant molecules and transporting them to the olfactory receptor located on the dendrite of the olfactory neurons. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Molecular biology of barnacle Balanus improvisus settlement

    Författare :Anna Abramova; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; barnacles; settlement; transcriptomics; ecdysone cascade; chemosensory receptors; waterborne pheromones;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to investigate molecular mechanisms of various aspects of barnacle settlement, using the acorn barnacle Balanus improvisus. This barnacle is a common fouling species and a model organism for studies in settlement biology, in particular in relation to antifouling research. LÄS MER
