  1. 1. Molecular and functional anatomy of the mouse olfactory epithelium

    Författare :Viktoria Vedin; Anna Berghard; Urban Lendahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; olfactory epithelium; odorant receptor; zone; odorant; gene expression; cell specification; c-Fos; dichlobenil; olfactometry; proliferation; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The olfactory system is important for social behaviors, feeding and avoiding predators. Detection of odorous molecules is made by odorant receptors on specialized sensory neurons in the olfactory epithelial sheet. LÄS MER

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. The Role of Lhx2 During Organogenesis : - Analysis of the Hepatic, Hematopoietic and Olfactory Systems

    Författare :Åsa Kolterud; Leif Carlsson; Stefan Thor; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; LIM-homeobox gene; Lhx2; fetal liver; hepatic stellate cells; hematopoietic stem cells; septum transversum; self-renewal; odorant receptor genes; olfactory epithelium; olfactory sensory neuron; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : During embryonic development a variety of tissues and organs such as the lung, eye, and kidney are being formed. The generation of functional organs is regulated by reciprocal cell-cell interactions. Via the secretion of soluble molecules one type of cells affect the fate of their neighboring cells. LÄS MER

  4. 4. From sequence to function : Comparative studies of insect olfactory receptors

    Författare :Xiaoqing Hou; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Olfactory receptor; Heterologous expression; Pheromone; Plant volatile; Insect;

    Sammanfattning : In insects airborne odors are detected by the odorant receptors (ORs) and ionotropic receptors (IRs), located on the dendritic membrane of the olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) housed in olfactory sensilla. The OR and IR gene families show high plasticity in lineage expansion and contraction following the birth-and-death evolutionary model. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Olfaction in the spruce bark beetle, Ips typographus : receptor, neuron and habitat

    Författare :Martin Andersson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The bark beetle Ips typographus regularly kills spruce trees in the Palearctic. Spruces are colonized by means of attraction to an aggregation pheromone. Attraction is modulated by anti-attractive volatiles (NHV) from non-host plants. In this thesis, olfaction in I. LÄS MER
