    ..Limb tendons appeared strongly positive. There was weak expression in heart ventricles. These results show that fascin-1 is principally expressed in neural and mesenchymal derivatives during embryonic development. ..

    ..These amino acids participate in odorant binding with variable importance depending on the type of odorant, revealing functional "fingerprints" of ligand-receptor interactions. ..

    ..Furthermore, these mice show decreased avoidance behavior toward the predator odorant trimethyl-thiazoline. Our results indicate that the pattern of glomerular innervation in the OB is critical for innate behavioral responses in mice. ..

    ..These results demonstrate that Goofy plays an important role in establishing the acuity of olfactory sensory signaling. ..

    ..Odor discrimination is thus determined by differences in the receptive ranges of the odorant receptors that together encode specific odorant molecules. ..

    ..The current study reveals the molecular environment of the odorant-binding site, and it further advances the understanding of GPCR pharmacology. ..

    ..These findings indicate a novel strategy of axon guidance in the mouse olfactory system during development. ..

    ..Taken together, these results identify a previously unexplored key central IL-1-parasympathetic-bone axis that antagonizes the skeletal sympathetic tone, thus potently favoring bone mass accrual...
