Image: TRPC2 labeling (green) in the mouse vomeronasal organ (VNO). The VNO is a sensory organ that is found in most terrestrial vertebrates and that is principally implicated in the detection of pheromones. TRPC2 is an ion channel specifically expressed in the VNO and essential for vomeronasal signal transduction, involved in pheromone-mediated behaviors.
