epithelium of the human nose: a pilot study," Rhinology, vol.
Acts as a kairomone, detected by the prey vomeronasal
organ and inducing fear reactions in mice.
Using OCPI, many thousands of neurons have been imaged simultaneously to record chemosensory responses in the mouse vomeronasal
epithelium, revealing new organizational principles of an entire sensory system (Turaga and Holy, 2012).
When a dog sniffs, some of the air that is taken in passes through specialised nasal cells to an organ known as the vomeronasal
The prairie vole vomeronasal
organ is a target for gonadotropin-releasing hormone.
Odor-sensing nerve cells in a nose structure called the vomeronasal
organ recognize the odor of male mice and alert the brain.
Specific attention is paid to the loss of the vomeronasal
The ram uses his vomeronasal
organ sometimes called the Jacobson's organ the pheromones of ewes and detecting when they are in estrus.
In vertebrates, they are coded by six major multigene families: the trace amine-associated receptors (TAAR) , the olfactory receptors (OR) , the type I and II vomeronasal
receptors (V1R and V2R) [3, 4, 7], and type I and II taste receptors (T1R and T2R) [1, 2].
organ (VNO) is an essential functioning organ in some animals.
