Transient receptor potential melastatin-5 (TRPM5) is a calcium-gated monovalent cation channel expressed in highly specialized cells of the taste bud and gastrointestinal tract, as well as in pancreatic β-cells. Well established as a critical signaling protein for G protein-coupled receptor-mediated taste pathways, TRPM5 also has recently been implicated as(More)
Porcine organs are rapidly rejected after transplantation into primate recipients due to the presence of preexisting immunoglobulins that bind to terminal galactose alpha1,3 galactose residues (alpha-galactosyl) present on porcine glycoproteins and glycolipids. Currently available immunosuppressive reagents have been largely ineffective at controlling the(More)
