RUB Researchers decipher interaction of fragrances and olfactory receptorsbanana.

How the olfactory organ distinguishes such similar smells has been uncovered by an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the RUB. The scientists were the first the dynamics of the the dynamics of the three-dimensional structure of the binding site of an olfactory receptor. Also found also found a characteristic pattern of hydrogen bonds between odorant and receptor , which accounts for the specificity of the olfactory sensors. Using computer simulations, the RUB team was able to predict odorant molecules odorant molecules activate a certain receptor or not.
