Sandalwood is a popular ingredient in perfumes and incense sticks and, in tests, Dr Hans Hatt of the Ruhr-University Bochum in Germany found that the smell of sandalwood caused changes in cell activity that could facilitate the healing of skin wounds.

Professor Hanns Hatt, head of chair of cell physiology at the Ruhr University Bochum, had the goal to decode the functions of the smelling receptors. At the end of this research project diagnosis and therapy methods will be created which take advantage of and change these natural functions. "The fact that also skin cells, cancer cells, kidney and sperms cells have olfactory receptors give us means to control them" explains Hatt.

Hans Hatt, a biology professor at Ruhr University in Bochum, said knowledge about a newly discovered odor receptor on the sperm's surface could enable researchers to devise alternative contraception methods or ways to boost fertility.
"This is the first time sperm has been shown to respond to smell," Hatt, who said the findings came after three years of study, told Reuters."The application of the substances in a salve to the vaginal area could raise the chance of conceiving."
He said receptors in the sperm's membranes are attracted to two chemical compounds, cyclamal and bourgeonal, used in the cosmetics industry to imitate the plant's smell.
Another compound, undecanal, was found to block the attraction and could be used for contraceptive ends, he added.

"There is no question that we all possess a vomeronasal organ," says Professor Hans Hatt, cell physiologist at the University of Bochum.

by Dr. Hans Hatt of Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany, skin cells can sense smell and respond positively to the application of synthetic sandalwood molecules. While it is well known that humans have these olfactory receptors in their nose, this is the first time such receptors have been found in the outermost layer of skin cells.
Dr. Hatt's research, which was published on July 8 in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology , shows that when synthetic sandalwood scent is in proximity of these receptors, the receptors trigger a calcium-dependent signal pathway. This pathway ensures a quicker migration of cells to damaged tissue. The activated receptors also caused a 32 percent increase in cell proliferation. Dr. Hatt told Time that this discovery could lead to further research in wound healing and even to applications for cancer, as T-cells-responsible for killing cancer cells-have olfactory receptors as well.
Hatt stated, "I feel a mission to convince my colleagues, and especially clinicians, that this huge family of olfactory receptors plays an important role in cell physiology.
