We report the identification of a physiological receptor-volatile pair in the mouse olfactory system. By activity-guided fractionation of exocrine gland extracts and subsequent chemical analysis, (Z)-5-tetradecen-1-ol was identified as a natural ligand for a mouse odorant receptor. (Z)-5-tetradecen-1-ol is excreted into male mouse urine under androgen control and enhances urine attractiveness to female mice. This report is to our knowledge the first to describe natural product-based deorphanization of an odorant receptor.
