Question: The olfactory receptor also contains a membrane protein that recognizes isoamylacetate and, via several other molecules, transduces the odor stimulus into a receptor potential. Does the Pacinian corpuscle likely have this isoamylacetate receptor protein? Does the free nerve ending likely have this isoamylacetate receptor protein?

My answer: I have reasoned that since isoamyl acetate is an odorous liquid, then neither the Pacinian corpuscle nor the free nerve endings would contain receptor proteins for this chemical. Am I right?
