Abstract

Odorant receptors are thought to be critical determinants of olfactory sensory neuron axon targeting and organization. Nonetheless, a systematic characterization of the onset of odorant receptor expression has not yet been done in the main olfactory epithelium. Here, we briefly review our current understanding regarding the onset of odorant receptor expression in the main olfactory epithelium and identify some of those questions which we believe must be of high priority for future study.
