UC Davis Scientists Discover Exact Receptor for DEET That Repels Mosquitoes

2 days ago − University of California - Davis
DEET has been the gold standard of insect repellents for more than six decades, and now researchers led by a University of California, Davis, scientist have discovered the exact odorant receptor that repels them. They also have identified a plant defensive compound that might mimic DEET, a discovery that could pave the way for better and more affordable insect repellents. Findings from the study appear in the journal…
