By Frank Zufall, Steven D. Munger

Written through leaders within the box of chemosensation, Chemosensory Transduction offers a entire source for figuring out the molecular mechanisms that permit animals to notice their chemical global. The textual content focuses on mammals, but in addition comprises a number of chapters on chemosensory transduction mechanisms in decrease vertebrates and bugs. This e-book examines transduction mechanisms within the olfactory, flavor, and somatosensory (chemesthetic) structures in addition to in a number of inner sensors which are chargeable for homeostatic legislation of the physique. Chapters hide such subject matters as social odors in mammals, vertebrate and invertebrate olfactory receptors, peptide signaling in style and intestine nutrient sensing. incorporates a foreword by means of preeminent olfactory scientist Stuart Firestein, Chair of Columbia University’s division of organic Sciences in long island, NY.

Chemosensory Transduction describes state of the art ways and key findings with regards to the learn of the chemical senses. hence, it serves because the go-to reference for this topic for training scientists and scholars with backgrounds in sensory biology and/or neurobiology. the amount can be invaluable for researchers engaged within the layout or trying out of flavors, fragrances, meals and/or pharmaceuticals.

  • Provides a finished review for all chemosensory transduction mechanisms
  • Valuable for lecturers considering sensory biology, neurobiology, and chemosensory transduction, in addition to researchers in new taste, perfume, and nutrition testing
  • Edited by means of prime specialists within the box of olfactory transduction
  • Focuses on mammals, yet decrease vertebrates and invertebrate version structures also are included
