(17) reported using 10 different odorants
in a study designed to examine orthonasal and retronasal olfaction in patients with a diagnosis of nasal polyposis.
were identified by comparing the MS spectra to the National Institute of Standards and Technology and Wiley (Hoboken, New Jersey, USA) MS libraries, which matched degrees up to 800 or more.
were quantified by stable isotope dilution assays.
The aroma constituents in the jasmine tea have already been profiled [8-10] and linalool and methyl anthranilate (in addition to a few other compounds) are identified as the potent odorants
The above mentioned 13 odorants
were purchased from Sigma Aldrich (St.
Correlations between microclimate variables and airborne particles and odorants
Because there is presumptive evidence from recordings of local interneurons within the OL of both crayfishes (Mellon and Alones, 1995) and spiny lobsters (Schmidt and Ache, 1996), the multiglomerular distribution of these cells and their response to complex odorants
indicate that they receive inputs from different classes of ORNs, thereby satisfying the criterion of excitation via spatially different afferent pathways.
The mapping of odor codes opens up new possibilities for biotechnology applications and it will also lay the scientific groundwork for the next generation of aroma products, which use the potential of optimized biosynthetic pathways in plants for industrial-scale production of high-quality food odorants
The center says the analysis of odorants
could help in the early detection of ovarian cancer and reduce the number of deaths.
The detailed explanation of why individual chemicals (called odorants
) might have a particular smell is still elusive.
In the new study, Ayumi Nagashima and Kazushige Touhara of the University of Tokyo added odorants
to tiny amounts of mucus sucked out of a mouse's nose and tested the resulting chemical composition of the mix.
