Receptors odourant

From Biology-Online Dictionary | Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

receptors, odourant

proteins, usually projecting from the cilia of olfactory receptor neurons, that specifically bind odourant molecules and trigger responses in the neurons. The large number of different odourant receptors appears to arise from several gene families or subfamilies rather than from dNA rearrangement.
