    ..The presence and the proper removal of the navigator neurons are both required to establish tight axon convergence into the glomeruli. ..
  2. Kim S, Ma L, Unruh J, McKinney S, Yu C. Intracellular chloride concentration of the mouse vomeronasal neuron. BMC Neurosci. 2015;16:90 pubmed publisher
    ..The VNO neurons rest at high intracellular Cl(-) concentration, which can lead to depolarization of the cell when chloride channels open. These results also provide additional support of TRPC2-independent pathway of VNO activation. ..
  3. Yu C, Wu Y. Regeneration and rewiring of rodent olfactory sensory neurons. Exp Neurol. 2017;287:395-408 pubmed publisher
    ..Here we review progresses and controversies in the field and offer testable models. ..

    ..These results suggest a gating mechanism in the vomeronasal circuit in promoting specific innate behavior.DOI: ..

    ..Moreover, noncoding RNA may offer a potential regulatory mechanism controlling the differential expression patterns. ..
