We used differential screening of cDNAs from individual taste receptor cells to identify candidate taste transduction elements in mice. Among the differentially expressed clones, one encoded Trpm5, a member of the mammalian family of transient receptor potential (TRP) channels. We found Trpm5 to be expressed in a restricted manner, with particularly high levels in taste tissue. In taste cells, Trpm5 was coexpressed with taste-signaling molecules such as α-gustducin, Gγ13, phospholipase C-β2… 
The Transduction Channel TRPM5 Is Gated by Intracellular Calcium in Taste Cells
TLDR
It is found that taste cells have a second type of Ca2+-activated nonselective cation channel that is less sensitive to intracellular Ca2+.
Characterization of umami receptor and coupling G protein in mouse taste cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that umami stimuli were received by G protein-coupled receptors that function together with some of the G&agr;i family members.
Morphologic characterization of rat taste receptor cells that express components of the phospholipase C signaling pathway
TLDR
It is suggested that type II cells are the principal transducers of bitter, sweet, and umami taste transduction, but not type III cells, because they did not observe synapses between type II taste cells and nerve fibers.
Separate Populations of Receptor Cells and Presynaptic Cells in Mouse Taste Buds
TLDR
Functional calcium imaging and single-cell reverse transcription (RT)-PCR demonstrate the existence of at least two molecularly distinct functional classes of taste cells: receptor cells and synapse-forming cells.
Functional expression of the extracellular-Ca2+-sensing receptor in mouse taste cells
TLDR
The results indicate that type III cells can serve a novel chemosensory function by expressing the polymodal receptor CASR and identify transcripts for both receptors in type I cells, no transcripts in type II cells and only CASR transcripts intype III cells, by using the SMART-PCR RNA amplification method.
Transient receptor potential channel M5 and phospholipaseC-&bgr;2 colocalizing in zebrafish taste receptor cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that zfTRPM5 and PLC-&bgr;2 colocalize in zebrafish taste receptor cells, suggesting their crucial roles in taste signaling via the fish taste receptors.
Transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 mediates sour taste sensing via type III taste cell differentiation
TLDR
The present results suggest that TRPV4 contributes to sour taste sensing by regulating type III taste cell differentiation in mice.
Identification of TRPM5 Ion Channels in Type-II Taste Cells of Mice
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the properties of recombinant TRPM5 and Ca2+-activated membrane channels in type-II taste cells in mice found them to have the current–voltage characteristics of outward rectification and a high thermosensitivity.
TRPM4 and TRPM5 are both required for normal signaling in taste receptor cells
TLDR
Using live cell imaging and behavioral studies in KO mice, it is shown that TRPM4 and TRPM5 are both involved in taste-evoked signaling and both are required and sufficient for the transduction of bitter, sweet, and umami stimuli.
Expression of P2Y1 receptors in rat taste buds
TLDR
The results suggest that ATP may activate P2Y receptors resulting in Ca2+ release from internal stores via IP3R3 and SNAP-25, and that many SNAP- 25-immunoreactive taste bud cells coexpressed P2y1 immunoreactivity, it is suggested that P 2Y1-expressing cells may possess synapses with afferent nerve fibers.

A candidate taste receptor gene near a sweet taste locus
TLDR
A candidate taste receptor gene, T1r3, is described that is located at or near the mouse Sac locus, a genetic locus that controls the detection of certain sweet tastants.
A family of candidate taste receptors in human and mouse
TLDR
The identification of a family of candidate taste receptors (the TRBs) that are members of the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily and that are specifically expressed by taste receptor cells are reported.
Immunocytochemical evidence for co-expression of Type III IP3 receptor with signaling components of bitter taste transduction
TLDR
IP3R3 is the dominant form of the IP3 receptor expressed in taste cells and the data suggest it plays an important role in bitter taste transduction.
Identification of a novel member of the T1R family of putative taste receptors
TLDR
T1R3 maps near the telomere of mouse chromosome’4 rendering it a candidate for the Sac locus, a primary determinant of sweet preference in mice, and displays taste receptor cell‐specific expression.
The trp ion channel family
TLDR
Three subgroups comprise the TRP channel family; the best understood of these mediates responses to painful stimuli, and other proposed functions include repletion of intracellular calcium stores, receptor-mediated excitation and modulation of the cell cycle.
Molecular genetic identification of a candidate receptor gene for sweet taste.
TLDR
The results indicate that T1R3 may serve as the receptor for sweet perception in mice and was expressed in a subset of taste receptor cells in taste buds.
Transduction of bitter and sweet taste by gustducin
TLDR
Gustducin is a principal mediator of both bitter and sweet signal transduction, and its role in taste transduction is investigated by generating and characterizing mice deficient in the gustducin α-subunit.
Gγ13 colocalizes with gustducin in taste receptor cells and mediates IP3 responses to bitter denatonium
TLDR
It is concluded that gustducin heterotrimers transduce responses to bitter and sweet compounds via α-gustducin's regulation of phosphodiesterase (PDE) and Gβγ's activation of phospholipase C (PLC).
