<div><p>Insect gustatory receptors are predicted to have a seven-transmembrane structure and are distantly related to insect olfactory receptors, which have an inverted topology compared with G-protein coupled receptors, including mammalian olfactory receptors. In contrast, the topology of insect gustatory receptors remains unknown. Except for a few examples from <em>Drosophila</em>, the specificity of individual insect gustatory receptors is also unknown. In this study, the total number of identified gustatory receptors in <em>Bombyx mori</em> was expanded from 65 to 69. BmGr8, a silkmoth gustatory receptor from the sugar receptor subfamily, was expressed in in...
