Plants produce insect repellents, such as citronellal, which is the main component of citronellal oil. However, the molecular pathways through which insects sense botanical repellents are unknown. Here, we show that Drosophila use two pathways for direct avoidance of citronellal.

The biosynthesis of cyclic monoterpenes (C(10)) generally requires the cyclization of an activated linear precursor (geranyldiphosphate) by specific terpene cyclases. Cyclic triterpenes (C(30)), on the other hand, originate from the linear precursor squalene by the action of squalene-hopene cyclases (SHCs)
