Essential oils in poultry nutrition: Main effects and modes of action
Antimicrobial compounds produced by microorganisms have been used for decades in poultry diets to increase performance and decrease morbidity particularly in broiler chickens. However, consumer… Expand
Expression, Regulation and Putative Nutrient-Sensing Function of Taste GPCRs in the Heart
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are critical for cardiovascular physiology. Cardiac cells express >100 nonchemosensory GPCRs, indicating that important physiological and potential therapeutic… Expand
Extrasensory perception: odorant and taste receptors beyond the nose and mouth.
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent the largest family of transmembrane receptors and are prime therapeutic targets. The odorant and taste receptors account for over half of the GPCR… Expand
Critical review evaluating the pig as a model for human nutritional physiology.

The present review examines the pig as a model for physiological studies in human subjects related to nutrient sensing, appetite regulation, gut barrier function, intestinal microbiota and… Expand
The avian taste system: Potential implications in poultry nutrition
Taste has evolved largely as a mechanism to identify nutritious foods and is important for detecting nutritionally relevant carbohydrates, amino acids, lipids, salts and toxic compounds. Species… Expand

Young animals can learn about flavors from the maternal diet that appear in the amniotic fluid and mother's milk, which may reduce neophobia for similarly flavored food types at weaning. Flavor… Expand
Variability in Human Bitter Taste Sensitivity to Chemically Diverse Compounds Can Be Accounted for by Differential TAS2R Activation.
The human population displays high variation in taste perception. Differences in individual taste sensitivity may also impact on nutrient intake and overall appetite. A well-characterized example is… Expand
Salivary leptin and TAS1R2/TAS1R3 polymorphisms are related to sweet taste sensitivity and carbohydrate intake from a buffet meal in healthy young adults.
The influence of sweet taste sensitivity on food intake is not well understood. We investigated the involvement of salivary leptin and SNP of the sweet taste receptor genes (TAS1R2/TAS1R3) on sweet… Expand

BackgroundThe oral GPCR nutrient/taste receptor gene repertoire consists of the Tas1r family (sweet and umami tastes), the Tas2r family (bitter taste) as well as several other potential candidate… Expand
