The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of common human variants in in taste related genes, such as CD36 gene, a putative fat taste receptor, affect fat taste perception.
It is commonly believed that a link exists between BMI and taste perception. One group of researchers observed that women who are obese experience reduced taste sensitivity when compared t...
This proposal describes a pilot study aimed at determining whether genetic variations in taste receptors determine differential taste tolerability of pediatric medications.
Although taste influences food choices and favours diseases like obesity, there is no consensus about the existence of correlations between bitterness and anthropometric variables. Also, a...
Food is selected primarily on their taste and texture properties. It is essential to get more insight in taste and texture characteristics of the foods in the Dutch and Malaysian diets for...
Taste is mediated by multicellular taste buds distributed throughout the oral and pharyngeal cavities. The taste buds can detect five basic tastes: sour, sweet, bitter, salty and umami, allowing mamma...
Research suggests a difference in sweet taste perception between non-Hispanic black (NHB) and non-Hispanic white (NHW) adults; however, limited research has examined sweet taste perception in relation...
Cells can communicate with one another through physical connections and chemical signaling, activating various signaling pathways that can affect cellular functions and behaviors. In taste buds, taste...
To investigate aging-dependent changes in taste sensitivities, we performed behavioral tests regarding taste sensitivity among young and old SAMP1 mice. In this senescence-accelerated mice model, dram...
Efforts continue to understand the underlying mechanism of weight loss after bariatric surgery. Taste perception has shown to be a contributing factor. However, the alteration pattern in different tas...
The process by which the nature and meaning of gustatory stimuli are recognized and interpreted by the brain. The four basic classes of taste perception are salty, sweet, bitter, and sour.
Conditions characterized by an alteration in gustatory function or perception. Taste disorders are frequently associated with OLFACTION DISORDERS. Additional potential etiologies include METABOLIC DISEASES; DRUG TOXICITY; and taste pathway disorders (e.g., TASTE BUD diseases; FACIAL NERVE DISEASES; GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL NERVE DISEASES; and BRAIN STEM diseases).
The minimum concentration at which taste sensitivity to a particular substance or food can be perceived.
A condition characterized by alterations of the sense of taste which may range from mild to severe, including gross distortions of taste quality.
Small sensory organs which contain gustatory receptor cells, basal cells, and supporting cells. Taste buds in humans are found in the epithelia of the tongue, palate, and pharynx. They are innervated by the CHORDA TYMPANI NERVE (a branch of the facial nerve) and the GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL NERVE.
