PROP Taster Status Is Related to Fat Perception and Preference a
TLDR
The hypothesis that fat perception and preference can be linked to genetic and anatomical differences between individuals is supported.
Detection thresholds for quinine, PTC, and PROP measured using taste strips
TLDR
The data suggest that determining taster status for quinine using paper “taste strips”, applied to front part of the tongue, represents a suitable method for the screening for ageusia for bitter taste.
Measures of individual differences in taste and creaminess perception.
TLDR
Comparisons of individual differences in perception of 4 prototypical taste stimuli and PROP under conditions that also enabled assessment of the reliability of individual intensity ratings of taste support other evidence that the genetic factors which determine the ability to perceive PROP do not play a major role in overall taste and oral somatosensory perception.
Individual Variation in PROP Status, Fungiform Papillae Density, and Responsiveness to Taste Stimuli in a Large Population Sample
TLDR
A complex interplay between 6-n-propylthiouracil status and fungiform papillae density and the need of a critical reconsideration of their role in food perception and acceptability is highlighted.
Associations between taste genetics, oral sensation and alcohol intake
PROP (6‐n‐Propylthiouracil) Supertasters and the Saltiness of NaCl a
TLDR
Taste blindness to phenylthiocarbamide and its chemical relative 6‐n‐propylthiouracil (PROP) was discovered in the 1930s was discovered to be the most intense to supertasters because taste buds in fungiform papillae are innervated by the trigeminal nerve as well as the chorda tympani nerve.

TLDR
Analysis of variance showed significant differences in acceptance of cheese and milk for the two taste groups on one of the three preference tasks, selection of foods in order of preference, suggesting that they like it less or more.

The study of patients with taste disorders suggests that the old tongue maps (e.g. sweet on the tip, bitter on the back) that often appear in textbooks are wrong.
