Function Odorant coreceptor which complexes with conventional odorant receptors (ORs) to form odorant-sensing units, providing sensitive and prolonged odorant signaling and calcium permeability. Orco is a universal and integral part of the functional odorant receptor, involved in the dendritic localization of other olfactory receptors. Can form functional ion channels in the absence of an odor-binding OR. Plays a key role in preferred attraction of females for humans over non-human hosts for blood feeding. Human attraction plays a crucial role in the transmission of Plasmodium protozoans by the mosquito leading to infection diseases like malaria. Also required for the response to N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide (DEET), the most widely used insect repellent worldwide.
Subcellular Location Cell membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein
Protein Families Insect chemoreceptor superfamily, Heteromeric odorant receptor channel (TC 1.A.69) family, Orco subfamily
Tissue Specificity Expressed in olfactory and gustatory organs of both adult and immature stages. Highest expression is seen in adult antennae and the maxillary palps. Lower expression also seen in proboscis and legs. Within the antenna, expression originates in cell bodies
