After the Holy Grail: Establishing a Molecular Basis for Mammalian Olfaction

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The quest to identify mammalian odorant receptors was a triumph of molecular biology. The characterization of these molecules has provided extraordinary insight into the strategy used by one neuronal system to organize sensory structures and code complex information. The odorant receptor genes have also served as powerful tools in understanding genomic organization and gene regulation.
