1.A.69.2.1
The insect heteromeric CO2 receptor: GR21a (Olfactory receptor 21a; 454 aas) GR63a (Olfactory receptor 63a; 512 aas) are coexpressed in antennal neurons of insects and together comprise the peripheral sensory receptor for CO2 (Ramdya and Benton, 2010). These proteins are members of the 7Tm-7 superfamily of putative 7TMS proteins.
