The vomeronasal cavity in adult humans.
We observed the surface of the anterior part of the nasal septum of living subjects using an endoscope. In approximately 13% of 1842 patients without pathology of the septum, the vomeronasal pit wasExpand

Nonsynonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms in human tas1r1, tas1r3, and mGluR1 and individual taste sensitivity to glutamate.
Several studies indicate an essential role of the heterodimer Tas1R1-Tas1R3 for monosodium l-glutamate (MSG) detection, although others suggest alternative receptors. Human subjects show differentExpand

Evidence of an odorant-binding protein in the human olfactory mucus: location, structural characterization, and odorant-binding properties.
Odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) are small abundant extracellular proteins belonging to the lipocalin superfamily. They are thought to participate in perireceptor events of odor detection by carrying,Expand

X chromosome-linked Kallmann syndrome: clinical heterogeneity in three siblings carrying an intragenic deletion of the KAL-1 gene.
Kallmann syndrome (KS) is characterized by the association of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia. The gene underlying the X chromosome-linked form of the disease, KAL-1, consists of 14 codingExpand

Identification of human olfactory cleft mucus proteins using proteomic analysis.
In humans, the olfactory epithelium is located in two narrow passages, the olfactory clefts, at the upper part of the nasal cavities. The olfactory epithelium is covered by a mucus layer which isExpand

Computed tomography of the anterior skull base in Kallmann syndrome reveals specific ethmoid bone abnormalities associated with olfactory bulb defects.
CONTEXT Kallmann syndrome (KS) is characterized by congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (CHH) and an impaired sense of smell related to defective development of the olfactory system. OBJECTIVEExpand

Taste deficits after middle ear surgery for otosclerosis: taste somatosensory interactions.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the postoperative consequences of chorda tympani reclining during middle ear surgery for otosclerosis. Electrogustometric taste thresholds were measured at 11Expand

Inflammatory obstruction of the olfactory clefts and olfactory loss in humans: a new syndrome?
The first step in the olfactory perception is the activation by odorants of sensory neurones in the olfactory epithelium. In humans, this sensory epithelium is located at 2 narrow passages, theExpand
