Diamond micro-cantilevers as transducers for Olfactory Receptors - based biosensors

Edith Pajot-Augy


Edith Pajot-Augy graduated as a Physical Engineer in 1981 and she holds an Engineer PhD. After a post-doc at the University of Pennsylvania, she worked as an engineer in MATRA, and integrated INRA in 1986. Since 1992, she has a special interest in the functional expression of olfactory receptors, the molecular mechanisms of olfactory detection, and the molecular modelization of odorant docking on olfactory receptors. She coordinated a project and workpackages of European projects, on micro-nano olfactory biosensors based on olfactory receptors. An INRA research director since 2007, she heads the Research Unit NeuroBiologie de l'Olfaction since 2010.


Introduction Olfactory receptors (ORs) are proteins located in the plasma membrane of olfactory sensory neurons. They belong to the family of G protein-coupled receptors. Individual ORs bind various odorants with distinct... [ view full abstract ]
