Single odors differentially stimulate dual second messenger pathways in lobster olfactory receptor cells.
These receptors are located on the olfactory receptor cells, which occupy a small area in the upper part of the nasal epithelium and detect the inhaled odorant molecules.
Since most odors are mixtures and a single olfactory receptor cell can be stimulated by more than one compound, the odor from a single source will excite a number of different receptor cells, with the pattern of excitation varying form one odor mixture to another.
