Abstract
The ability of olfactory receptor neurons to detect female-produced sex pheromone components and a limited sample of potential host plant odours was studied by single-sensillum recordings from olfactory sensilla present on male and female antennae in Manduca sexta, The majority of pheromone-sensitive receptor neurons examined in males was specialized for detection of the two major pheromone components, E10,Z12-hexadecadienal and E10,E12,Z14-hexadecatrienal or E10,E12,E14-hexadecatrienal. New olfactory receptor neurons tuned to the minor components E10,E12-hexadecadienal and Z11-hexadecenal were found. in females, olfactory receptor neurons specific to Z11-hexadecanal were discovered. Pheromone components and host volatiles were detected by separate sets of receptor neurons.
