Specificity-related suppression of responses to binary mixtures in olfactory receptors of the Colorado potato beetle

, : Specificity-related suppression of responses to binary mixtures in olfactory receptors of the Colorado potato beetle. Brain Research 447(1): 18-24

Responses of antennal olfactory receptors of the Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say) to stimulation with 5 general green odour components, i.e. cis-3-hexen-1-ol, trans-2-hexenal, cis-3-hexenyl acetate, trans-2-hexen-1-ol and 1-hexanol, were recorded extracellularly. Response spectra derived from these recordings cannot be classified into distinct reaction types. The spectra overlap in their sensitivity to individual stimuli, but there are differences in their degree of specialization with a gradual conversion from generalist to specialist receptors. Moreover, specialization is found to different stimuli. Receptor reactions to stimulation with binary mixtures of 3 of these compounds indicated that suppression of the response to one chemical by another is very common in olfactory receptor cells. The more a receptor is specialized, the stronger is this suppression. Suppression in narrowly tuned olfactory receptor neurones, therefore, is expected to play a fundamental role in the recognition of natural odour blends.
