Current responses to 100 odorants in oocytes injected with plasma membranes from ventral region, endoturbinates. A. Representative traces. Odorants were applied at 300 μM, for 15 sec and at -70 mV holding potential. Odorant number is shown at the indicated time of application. At the end of the each run, 1 mM IBMX was applied for 5 sec. Arrows indicate responses. B. Current responses of ventral region were normalized to the IBMX response in each oocyte (n = 3-8, mean ± SEM). As a control, M1 receptor was injected and tested for the same odorants (n = 8, mean ± SEM). Significant differences when compared to M1 receptor responses were indicated as * for p ≤ 0.05, ** for p ≤ 0.001 and *** p ≤ 0.0001.
