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
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.

Professor Hanns Hatt said the results published online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry can "be seen as evidence of a scientific basis for aromatherapy".
