Chirality & Odour Perception

Cooler than Menthol

Olfactory receptor gene superfamily of the mouse - Stuart Firestein with Xinmin Zhang at Columbia University have identified the mouse OR genes from the nearly complete Celera mouse genome by a comprehensive data mining strategy. They found 1,296 mouse OR genes (including 20% pseudogenes). Human ORs cover a similar 'receptor space' as the mouse ORs, suggesting that the human olfactory system has retained the ability to recognize a broad spectrum of chemicals even though humans have lost nearly two-thirds of the OR genes as compared to mice.

The human olfactory receptor repertoire - Scientists at Senomyx, Inc. have identified a set of 347 human olfactory receptor genes, which the Company believes represents substantially the complete set of functional receptors related to smell.

HORDE (The Human Olfactory Data Explorer) is a database of human Olfactory Receptors (ORs), the largest multigene family in vertabrates. their structure, function and evolution.A set of analysis tools is provided.
