Normal aging is a complex process that affects every organ system in the body, including the taste system. Thus, we investigated the effects of the normal aging process on taste bud morphology, function, and taste responsivity in male mice at 2, 10, and 18 months of age. The 18-month-old animals demonstrated a significant reduction in taste bud size and number of taste cells per bud compared with the 2- and 10-month-old animals. The 18-month-old animals exhibited a significant reduction of… Expand
Participation of the peripheral taste system in aging-dependent changes in taste sensitivity
TLDR
Comparison of the peripheral taste detection systems in young and old mice concluded that changes in taste sensitivity with aging were not caused by aging-related degradation of peripheral taste organs, and taste signal-modifying factors such as serum components may have a contributing role in aging- related changes in Taste sensitivity. Expand
Analysis of aging-dependent changes in taste sensitivities of the senescence-accelerated mouse SAMP1
TLDR
The results suggest that the changes in taste sensitivity of SAMP1 mice due to aging are caused by factors other than the deterioration of taste detection systems in the oral cavity. Expand
Longitudinal analysis of calorie restriction on rat taste bud morphology and expression of sweet taste modulators.
TLDR
Altered alterations of sweet taste-related modulators, specifically during advanced aging, suggest that sweet taste perception may be altered in response to different lengths of CR. Expand
Taste bud homeostasis in health, disease, and aging.
TLDR
The mammalian taste bud is an onion-shaped epithelial structure with 50-100 tightly packed cells, including taste receptor cells, supporting cells, and basal cells, which contribute to taste dysfunction associated with disease and aging. Expand
Arecoline Alters Taste Bud Cell Morphology, Reduces Body Weight, and Induces Behavioral Preference Changes in Gustatory Discrimination in C57BL/6 Mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that the long-term injection of arecoline alters the morphology of type II taste bud cells, retards the growth of mice, and affects discrimination competencies for sweet tastants. Expand
AP1 transcription factors are required to maintain the peripheral taste system
TLDR
RNA-sequencing analysis on isolated taste cells from 2 and 6-month-old mice found that the activator protein-1 (AP1) transcription factors and genes associated with this pathway were significantly downregulated in taste cells by 6 months and further declined at 12 months. Expand
Altered learning, memory, and social behavior in type 1 taste receptor subunit 3 knock-out mice are associated with neuronal dysfunction
TLDR
The data suggest that the sweet-taste receptor system plays an important neurotrophic role in the extralingual central nervous tissue that underpins synaptic function, memory acquisition, and social behavior. Expand
Taste preference changes throughout different life stages in male rats
TLDR
The old-aged group tended to prefer high concentrations of sucrose, QHCl, NaCl, and MSG to low concentrations, indicating age-related decline in taste sensitivity. Expand
Sweet Preference Modified by Early Experience in Mice and the Related Molecular Modulations on the Peripheral Pathway
TLDR
The preference thresholds for sweet taste were increased in adults by early acesulfame-K exposure and the preference ratios for sweet tastants at low or preferred concentrations were decreased and the sweet taste sensitivity may be modified by early sweetener experience during lactation. Expand
Selective Pe-ripheral Taste Dysfunction in APP/PS1 Mutant Transgenic Mice.
TLDR
This data supports a potential role for peripheral taste dysfunction in AD through the selective loss of taste receptor cells. Expand

TLDR
Age-associated changes in cell renewal of taste buds in the circumvallate papillae of ddY mice are investigated and may be related to the decline in taste sensitivity with aging. Expand
Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide–Null Mice Demonstrate Enhanced Sweet Taste Preference, Dysglycemia, and Reduced Taste Bud Leptin Receptor Expression
TLDR
This study suggests that the tongue can play a direct role in modulating energy intake to correct peripheral glycemic imbalances and could view the tongue as a sensory mechanism that is bidirectionally regulated and thus forms a bridge between available foodstuffs and the intricate hormonal balance in the animal itself. Expand
A Histomorphometric Study of the Age-related Changes of the Human Taste Buds in Circumvallate Papillae
TLDR
The taste bud density and the taste bud cell density in the older age groups was lower than that of the younger age groups, and the AgNOR number of lingual epithelial cells decreased significantly in the Older Age groups, but the Taste bud cells did not. Expand
Taste bud cells of adult mice are responsive to Wnt/β‐catenin signaling: Implications for the renewal of mature taste cells
TLDR
The data suggest that Wnt/β‐catenin signaling may influence taste cell turnover by regulating cell differentiation and reduced canonical Wnt signaling in older mice could explain in part the loss of taste sensitivity with aging, implicating a possible deficiency in the rate of taste cell renewal. Expand
Leptin modulates behavioral responses to sweet substances by influencing peripheral taste structures.
TLDR
The results suggest that leptin suppresses behavioral responses to sweet substances through its action on Ob-Rb in taste cells, and such taste modulation by leptin may be involved in regulation for food intake. Expand
Modulation of taste sensitivity by GLP‐1 signaling
TLDR
It is reported that glucagon‐like peptide‐1 (GLP‐1) signaling in taste buds modulates taste sensitivity in behaving mice, and this findings suggest a novel paracrine mechanism for the regulation of taste function. Expand
Glucagon signaling modulates sweet taste responsiveness
TLDR
It is reported that glucagon, which plays important roles in the maintenance of glucose homeostasis, enhances sweet taste responsiveness through local actions in the mouse gustatory epithelium. Expand
Human taste bud density across adult age groups.
TLDR
Differences in taste bud density that extend across age groups probably confound some inferences about the effects of aging on taste sensitivity that are derived from cross-sectional studies of human populations. Expand

TLDR
Taste disorders frequently occur when the fraction of an orally administered drug dose that reaches the systemic circulation is markedly increased due to inhibition (by a coadministered drug) of the efflux transporter P‐glycoprotein and/or inhibition of the cytochrome P450 metabolism system, which normally limit systemic availability of drugs. Expand
Modulation of Taste Sensitivity by GLP‐1 Signaling in Taste Buds
TLDR
It is found that the peptide hormone glucagon‐like peptide‐1 and its receptor (GLP‐1R) are expressed in mammalian taste buds and this finding suggests a novel paracrine mechanism for the hormonal modulation of taste function in mammals. Expand
