This study examines taste reception of neoculin, a Curculigo latifolia sweet protein with taste-modifying activity which converts sourness to sweetness. Neoculin tastes sweet to humans, but not to mice, and is received by the human sweet taste receptor hT1R2-hT1R3. In the present study with calcium imaging analysis of HEK cells expressing human and mouse… CONTINUE READING
