Immunocytochemical evidence for co-expression of Type III IP3 receptor with signaling components of bitter taste transduction

Abstract

Taste receptor cells are responsible for transducing chemical stimuli into electrical signals that lead to the sense of taste. An important second messenger in taste transduction is IP3, which is involved in both bitter and sweet transduction pathways. Several components of the bitter transduction pathway have been identified, including the T2R/TRB taste… (More)
