1.A.4.6.6
Water witch (Wtrw) of 986 aas, the "moist" humidity receptor, one of two hygrosensation receptors. These two transient receptor potential channels are needed for sensing humidity.  The other is Nanchung (Nan), involved in detecting dry air. Neurons associated with specialized sensory hairs in the third segment of the antenna express these channels, and neurons expressing Wtrw and Nan project to central nervous system regions associated with mechanosensation. Construction of the hygrosensing system with opposing receptors may allow an organism to very sensitively detect changes in environmental humidity (Liu et al. 2007).
