Effects of mother's dietary exposure to acesulfame-K in Pregnancy or lactation on the adult offspring's sweet preference.
This study investigates whether mother's exposure to the artificial sweetener acesulfame-K (AK) during pregnancy or lactation affected her adult offspring's sweet preference. It was found thatExpand

A novel sweet taste cell-based sensor.
In this paper, a novel sweet taste cell-based sensor is proposed for tastants detection. The human colorectal carcinoma NCI-H716 cell lines, which express α-gustducin and sweet taste receptorExpand

Effects of early intraoral acesulfame-K stimulation to mice on the adult's sweet preference and the expression of α-gustducin in fungiform papilla.
Exposure to artificial sweetener acesulfame-K (AK) at early development stages may influence the adult sweet preference and the periphery gustatory system. We observed that the intraoral AKExpand

A reliable method to obtain cells of taste buds from fungiform papillae of mice.
Taste buds consist of four kinds of cells which have distinct characteristics and play different roles in recognizing chemical compounds contained in foodstuffs. In this study we describe a procedureExpand

Regional differences in taste bud distribution and alpha-gustducin expression patterns in the mouse fungiform papilla.
The regional differences between distribution patterns and alpha-gustducin expression patterns of the fungiform (FF) taste buds were investigated in the adult mouse, using hematoxylin-eosin stainingExpand

Facilitation of the development of fungiform taste buds by early intraoral acesulfame-K stimulation to mice
The gustatory system is susceptible to anatomical modification by postnatal taste stimulations. This study investigated the effects of early intraoral infusion of acesulfame-K solution on theExpand
