Abstract

Two G protein subfamilies, Go(alpha) and Gi(alpha2), were identified and localized immunohistochemically in the vomeronasal organ (VNO) of 5-month-old human fetuses. Immunoreactivity for Go(alpha) and Gi(alpha2) was present in a subset of vomeronasal epithelial cells. Prominent immunoreactivity wasobserved in apical processes and their apical terminals facing onto the vomeronasal lumen. Nerve fibers associated with the VNO exhibited intense immunoreactivity for Go(alpha) and weak immunoreactivity for Gi(alpha2). SinceGo(alpha) and Gi(alpha2) are characteristically expressed and coupled withputative pheromone receptors in rodent vomeronasal receptor neurons, the present results suggest the possibility that vomeronasal epithelial cells containing Go(alpha) and Gi(alpha2) in human fetuses are chemosensory neurons.
