Soapy taste of coriander linked to genetic variants
Dislike of herb traced to genes encoding odour and taste receptors and the role of ‘spatially aggregating’ these genes in the development of taste and odour. Expand
Chemical Compositions of Commercial Essential Oils From Coriandrum sativum Fruits and Aerial Parts
Coriander and cilantro, the fruit and herb of Coriandrum sativum, are popular additives in various cuisines worldwide. The essential oils derived from coriander and cilantro are also popular and haveExpand
Do polymorphisms in chemosensory genes matter for human ingestive behavior?
A growing body of evidence indicates chemosensory variation is far more complex than previously believed, and a monolithic one-size-fits-all approach to bitterness needs to be abandoned. Expand
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Taint in Pinot noir: Detection and Consumer Rejection Thresholds of trans-2-Decenal
Brown marmorated stink bug contamination in grape clusters results in the addition of an aroma compound, trans-2-decenal (T2D), to wine. Described as a green, musty aroma, it is consideredExpand
Individual Differences in Multisensory Flavor Perception
Abstract Flavor is perceived differently across individuals. While there are certainly common percepts that all humans can relate to, the degree to which we each experience these sensations fromExpand


Antibacterial activity of coriander volatile compounds against Salmonella choleraesuis.
The time-kill curve study showed that these alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes are bactericidal against S. choleraesuis at any growth stage and that their bactericidal action comes in part from the ability to act as nonionic surfactants. Expand
Essential Oil Composition of Cilantro
The data indicate that cilantro oil may exhibit significant variation in composition due to ontogenic factors and suggest a possible link among growth stage, oil composition, and consumer preference. Expand
Odour-Blindness to Musk: Simple Recessive Inheritance
Specific anosmia in humans to two substances, iso-valeric acid and a musk, and a difference of incidence in both anosmias between Black and Caucasian subjects is found. Expand
Odour-Blindness to Musk: Simple Recessive Inheritance
THREE types of odour-blindness or specific anosmia have been studied, but genetical evidence so far obtained is tentative or inconsistent1. The rare anosmia to the n-butylmercaptan of skunk2, andExpand
Studies on the dual antioxidant and antibacterial properties of parsley (Petroselinum crispum) and cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) extracts
Abstract Antioxidant and antibacterial activities of freeze-dried and irradiated parsley (Petroselinum crispum) and cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) leaves and stems were determined on methanol andExpand
Prophylactic Efficacy of Coriandrum sativum (Coriander) on Testis of Lead-Exposed Mice
It is concluded that administration of C. sativum significantly protects against lead-induced oxidative stress and further work need to be done to isolate and purify the active principle involved in the antioxidant activity of this plant. Expand
Characteristic aroma components of the cilantro mimics
Aroma profiles of fresh herbs of cilantro (Coriandrum sativum L.), culantro (Eryngium foetidum L.) and Vietnamese coriander (Polygonium odoratum L.) were compared by direct solvent extraction, gasExpand

Adult twins were tested for their ability to smell androstenone and another odorant, pyridine, that is readily perceived by most adults, to indicate a genetic component of variation in sensitivity to this odor. Expand
Instar-specific defensive secretions of stink bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
Defensive secretions (allomones) from first-instar nymphs of stink bugs in the subfamily Pentatominae contain (E)-4-oxo-2-decenal as a major constituent, whereas this compound is absent from laterExpand
CD36 involvement in orosensory detection of dietary lipids, spontaneous fat preference, and digestive secretions.
It is demonstrated that CD36 is involved in oral LCFA detection and the possibility that an alteration in the lingual fat perception may be linked to feeding dysregulation is raised. Expand
