Sugar-activated Lingual Ion Transport and Sugar Taste 89 of its adherent muscle layers and mounted in modified Ussing chambers


There is good evidence indicating that ion-transport pathways in the apical regions o f lingual epithelial cells, including taste bud cells, may play a role in salt taste reception. In this article, we present evidence that, in the case o f the dog, there also exists a sugar-activated ion-transport pathway that is linked to sugar taste transduction… (More)
