Ancient olfaction protein is shared by many bugs, offering new pest control target

...nt receptor protein, Or83b, is found in almost all olfactory neurons and serves a general function in detecting odors. When the gene for Or83b is deleted, the flies can't smell. In the new study, Vosshall, in collaboration with researchers from Sentigen Biosciences, showed that the function of Or83b is preser...

One gene links newborn neurons with those that die in diseases such as Alzheimer's

...ilar techniques to assess UCHL1 in hippocampus and olfactory bulb neurons in mouse brains, areas where neurons are known to undergo spontaneous replacement. They found markedly low levels of UCHL1 in the replaceable neurons of both these regions. "Low levels of UCHL1 appear to be a feature of replaceable neur...

Can our genes tell the story of our divergence?

...hout mammalian evolution, while the perception and olfactory genes probably reflect primate-specific adaptations. Nielsen et al. also found a "surprising number" of tumor-suppressor and apoptosis genes. The factors behind this pattern are unclear, but the authors suggest that studying the genes' other functio...

...the way, finishing as neurons in a spot called the olfactory bulb. In the laboratory cultures, the cells still move about, but the pathway is no longer important, showing that neurogenesis does not necessarily require the environmental cues of the host brain.
