Background/Aims:TAS2R38 belongs to the TAS2R bitter taste receptor gene family and polymorphisms are associated with differences in bitter taste perception of phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) and 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP). The objectives were to test whether the genotype-phenotype relationship varies between ethnocultural groups and whether a filter paper method can predict TAS2R38 genotype. Methods: Subjects (n = 911) aged 20–29 rated the intensity of a PTC-containing filter paper on a scale of 1–9… Expand
Study of TAS2R38 Genes for Bitter Taste Depending on Heredity of Taster in Three Generations of Mathur Population.
TLDR
The study shows that genes may vary in different populations, genders as well as on environmental changes during life time locus, as genes are also affected by environmental changes, both internal environment aswell as external environment. Expand
COVID-19 as a worldwide selective event and bitter taste receptor polymorphisms: An ecological correlational study
TLDR
Due to extraoral activities of bitter taste receptor genes, especially in mucosal immunity, this gene seems to be a good candidate for future studies on COVID-19 pathophysiology and the results showed that the higher presence of PAV allele more than AVI, and a higher rate of G allele than A in rs10246939 polymorphism in a country, could be associated with lower CO VID-19 mortality.

Validation Study: Evaluating Phenotypic Expression of Bitter Taste Receptors
Introduction: Bitter taste receptors (T2Rs) have shown to play a role in sinonasal innate immunity against SARS-CoV-2. A taste strip test kit has been used in prior COVID-19 studies (prototypeExpand
Genotyping Analysis of Bitter-Taste Receptor Genes TAS2R38 and TAS2R46 in Japanese Patients with Gastrointestinal Cancers.
TLDR
It is suggested that the risk and resistance of cancers is antagonistically controlled by the two TAS2R38 alleles, PAV and AVI, rather than by the AVI allele alone. Expand
Self-reported Smoking Status, TAS2R38 Variants, and Propylthiouracil Phenotype: An Exploratory Crowdsourced Cohort Study
TLDR
There was a relationship between TAS2R38 diplotype and 6-n-propylthiouracil bitterness, but the effect was opposite of what was expected: current smokers perceived higher (not lower) bitterness than never smokers. Expand
Taste and Flavor Perceptions of Glucosinolates, Isothiocyanates, and Related Compounds
TLDR
The relative importance of taste and flavor perceptions resulting from such compounds is reviewed; collating evidence from papers where findings are based on sensory analytical correlations, and those that have extracted specific compounds prior to sensory evaluation. Expand
Phenotypic characterization of panelists as selection criterion
The phenotype of perceiving propylthiouracil (PROP) as either bitter or tasteless (so-called “PROP status”) correlates with other sensory parameters, including sensitivity to other tastes or foodExpand
Bitter taste genetics--the relationship to tasting, liking, consumption and health.
TLDR
It is becoming clear that genetics only plays a partial role in predicting preference, intake and health outcomes, and the complex, pleiotropic relationships involved are yet to be fully elucidated. Expand
The associations between bitter and fat taste sensitivity, and dietary fat intake: Are they impacted by genetic predisposition?
A relationship between bitter and fat taste sensitivity, CD36 rs1761667 and TAS2R38 has been demonstrated. However, research is scarce and does not take diet into account. This study aimed to exploreExpand
Bitter taste of Brassica vegetables: The role of genetic factors, receptors, isothiocyanates, glucosinolates, and flavor context
TLDR
Interestingly, for some people unpleasant sensations are not perceived, suggesting a potential role of inter-individual variability in bitter taste perception and sensibility. Expand

Bitter taste study in a sardinian genetic isolate supports the association of phenylthiocarbamide sensitivity to the TAS2R38 bitter receptor gene.
TLDR
A small isolated village in eastern Sardinia is studied and a genome-wide scan is carried out to map the genetic basis of PTC perception in this population to identify two haplotypes associated with the non-taster phenotype and to taster phenotype. Expand
Bitter receptor gene (TAS2R38), 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP) bitterness and alcohol intake.
TLDR
These results support taste genetic effects on alcohol intake, and PROP bitterness serves as a marker of these effects. Expand
The genetics of phenylthiocarbamide perception.
The ability to taste the bitter compound phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) and related chemicals is bimodal, and all human populations tested to date contain some people who can and some people who cannotExpand

TLDR
The primary goal of this review is to assess the current understanding of the role of the PROP bitter taste phenotype in food selection and body weight in both children and adults. Expand
The Molecular Basis of Individual Differences in Phenylthiocarbamide and Propylthiouracil Bitterness Perception
TLDR
Individual psychogenomic pathways for bitter taste are mapped by testing people with a variety of psychophysical tasks and linking their individual perceptions of the compounds PTC and propylthiouracil to the in vitro responses of their TAS2R38 receptor variants. Expand
Genetic and Environmental Determinants of Bitter Perception and Sweet Preferences
TLDR
The effects of race/ethnicity were the strongest determinants, thus suggesting that cultural forces and experience may override this genotype effect on sweet preferences, as well as a portion of individual differences in preferences for sweet flavors in children but not in adults. Expand
Natural selection and molecular evolution in PTC, a bitter-taste receptor gene.
The ability to taste phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) is a classic phenotype that has long been known to vary in human populations. This phenotype is of genetic, epidemiologic, and evolutionary interestExpand
Threshold Distributions of Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) in the Chinese Population a
TLDR
Using various parametric and nonparametric statistical methods, it is found that the data set is best described by a bimodal distribution, consistent with the view that the PTC nontasting ability follows a recessive mode of inheritance. Expand
Food acceptance and genetic variation in taste.
TLDR
Female supertasters of PROP bitterness may avoid high-fat or sweet foods because these oral sensations are too intense and thus less pleasant and because condiments (especially those that are salt based) can block bitterness. Expand
Taste responses to naringin, a flavonoid, and the acceptance of grapefruit juice are related to genetic sensitivity to 6-n-propylthiouracil.
TLDR
Testing the hypothesis that acceptance of grapefruit juice is influenced, in part, by sensitivity to the bitter taste of 6-n-propylthiouracil (Prop), a heritable trait, found increased taste acuity for both Prop and naringin was associated with greater dislike for each bitter compound. Expand
