Abstract

Mammalian olfactory sensory neurons that express a particular odorant receptor (OR) project axons to the same few glomeruli in the olfactory bulb. In this issue of Neuron, Vassalli et al. use OR minigenes that coexpress histochemical markers and show that the determinants in the sensory neurons required to generate the stereotyped olfactory bulb map are the same as those needed for appropriate expression of the OR.
