1.A.10.1.19
Olfactory glutamate-like ionotropic receptor, kainate 2 isoform X1 of 754 aas and 4 TMSs. Chen et al. 2017 identify 102 putative IR genes, (dubbed AalbIr genes) in the mosquito Aedes albopictus (Skuse), 19 of which showed expression in the female antenna. These putative olfactory AalbIRs share four conservative hydrophobic domains similar to the transmembrane and ion channel pore regions found in conventional iGluRs. To determine their potential functions in host-seeking, Chen et al. 2017 compared their transcript expression levels in the antennae of blood-fed females with that of non-blood-fed females. Three AalbIr genes showed downregulation when the mosquito finished a bloodmeal.
