1.A.69.1.1
Heteromeric odorant receptor, OR (Sato et al., 2008). OR22a senses fruit-derived esters. These olfactory receptors may have 3-d structures resembling animal rhodopsins, human citronellic terpenoid receptors, OR1A1 and OA1A2 and the mouse eugenol receptor, OR-EG (Ramdya and Benton, 2010). Molecular modelling of oligomeric states of DmOR83b has been reported (Harini and Sowdhamini, 2012).  Recombinant receptor together with the co-receptor, Orco, has been overproduced, purified and reconstituted in a lipid bilayer (Carraher et al. 2013).  Orco (Or83b) forms a dimer that is fully functional for Ca2+ transport, is regulated by calmodulin and interacts normally with Or22a.  The native Orco is therefore probably a dimer (Mukunda et al. 2014).
