Food Intake, Water Intake, and Drinking Spout Side Preference of 28 Mouse Strains
TLDR
There were large strain differences in all the measures collected, with at least a two-fold difference between strains with the lowest and the highest trait values. Expand
Taste receptor genes.
TLDR
Progress with understanding how T1R and T2R receptors interact with taste stimuli and with identifying their patterns of expression in taste cells sheds light on coding of taste information by the nervous system. Expand
Prenatal and postnatal flavor learning by human infants.
TLDR
Prenatal and early postnatal exposure to a flavor enhanced the infants' enjoyment of that flavor in solid foods during weaning, and these very early flavor experiences may provide the foundation for cultural and ethnic differences in cuisine. Expand
Sweetener preference of C57BL/6ByJ and 129P3/J mice.
TLDR
Compared with the 129 mice the B6 mice had higher preferences for sugars, sweet tasting amino acids and several but not all non-caloric sweeteners. Expand
Phytochemistry: Ibuprofen-like activity in extra-virgin olive oil
TLDR
It is shown that newly pressed extra-virgin olive oil contains oleocanthal, a compound whose pungency induces a strong stinging sensation in the throat, not unlike that caused by solutions of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen, which is an indicator of a shared pharmacological activity. Expand
Major taste loss in carnivorous mammals
TLDR
The sequenced entire coding region of Tas1r2 from 12 species in the order Carnivora provided strong support for the view that loss of taste receptor function in mammals is widespread and directly related to feeding specializations. Expand
T2R38 taste receptor polymorphisms underlie susceptibility to upper respiratory infection.
TLDR
Evidence that the bitter taste receptor T2R38 regulates the mucosal innate defense of the human upper airway is presented and that genetic variation contributes to individual differences in susceptibility to respiratory infection is suggested. Expand
Volatile signals of the major histocompatibility complex in male mouse urine.
TLDR
Results supporting the hypothesis that the MHC-determined urinary odor is composed of a mixture of volatile carboxylic acids occurring in relative concentrations that are characteristic of the odortype are reported. Expand
Polymorphisms in the Taste Receptor Gene (Tas1r3) Region Are Associated with Saccharin Preference in 30 Mouse Strains
TLDR
Data is presented for future studies directed to experimentally confirm the function of Tas1r3 sequence variants associated with saccharin preference and highlight some of the difficulties of identifying specific DNA sequence variants that underlie quantitative trait loci. Expand
Early Flavor Learning and Its Impact on Later Feeding Behavior
TLDR
The role and mechanisms of the chemical senses (taste, smell, and chemical irritation) in the perception of the flavor of a food or beverage are outlined and research findings on the ontogeny of flavor perception are described. Expand
