Associations of Olfactory Mucosa with chemical compounds

  • We report a strong positive correlation between the magnitude of adenylate cyclase stimulation and the summated electrical response of the olfactory epithelium (electro-olfactogram) evoked by individual odorants [22].
  • By backtracking with 1,1'-dioctadecyl-3,3,3',3'-tetramethylindocarbocyanine perchlorate (DiI), we find that neurons projecting into a single identified glomerulus are widely dispersed over the olfactory epithelium [23].
  • Retrograde tracing with fluorescently labeled latex beads, injected into glomerular subregions as small as 1% of the total glomerular volume, labeled receptor cells dispersed throughout the olfactory epithelium [24].
  • Leu 7 immunoreactivity in fetal olfactory epithelium and dysplastic or neoplastic olfactory lesions induced in Syrian golden hamsters by N-nitrosodiethylamine [25].
  • Carbachol, applied to the mucosal side of olfactory epithelium, amplified the electrical response of ORCs to cAMP-generating odorants, but did not affect unstimulated cells [26].
