One of the transduction mechanisms for the chemoreception of fat has been proposed to involve the inhibition of delayed rectifying potassium (DRK) channels by polyunsaturated free fatty acids (PUFAs). In the present study we have compared the responsiveness of fungiform taste receptor cells (TRCs) to fatty acids in obesity-prone (Osborne-Mendel; O-M) and(More)
Delayed rectifying K+ (DRK) channels in taste cells have been implicated in the regulation of cell excitability and as potential targets for direct and indirect modulation by taste stimuli. In the present study, we have used patch-clamp recording to determine the biophysical properties and pharmacological sensitivity of DRK channels in isolated rat(More)
In order to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms that allow taste cells to respond to changes in their osmotic environment, we have used primarily immunocytochemical and molecular approaches to look for evidence of the presence of aquaporin-like water channels in taste cells. Labeling of isolated taste buds from the fungiform, foliate, and vallate(More)
In this paper, we present a new method that is accurate and has low computational complexity to estimate the initial condition of chaotic signal. Then the estimation method is applied to a noise radar system using noncoherent reception scheme. In the new scheme, the received signal correlates with the estimated transmitted signal by the estimation method(More)
