Effect of quinine solutions on intracellular Ca2+ levels in neuro-2a cells--conventional physiological method for the evaluation of bitterness.

Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to examine the effect of quinine on intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) levels in cultured neuro-2a cells, and to investigate the possibility of using [Ca2+]i levels to predict the bitterness of quinine solutions. [Ca2+]i levels in neuro-2a cells increased following stimulation by quinine in a concentration-related manner… (More)
