Evolution and development of the olfactory neurons in the olfactores clade

Abstract:

In vertebrates, specialised olfactory systems and associated neurons are crucial to sense the outside chemical world. They also play a notable part in reproduction with the role of GnRH-producing neurons, derived from the olfactory placode, in sexual maturation and fertility. Despite the vital importance of these olfactory cell types, our knowledge of their evolutionary origin remains limited. In this work, a comparative approach is undertaken to study the development of olfactory neurons and...
