- An amino-acid taste receptor
Nelson et al.
Here we identify and characterize a mammalian amino-acid taste receptor.
This receptor, T1R1+3, is a heteromer of the taste-specific T1R1 and
T1R3 G-protein-coupled receptors. We demonstrate that T1R1 and T1R3
combine to function as a broadly tuned L-amino-acid sensor responding
to most of the 20 standard amino acids....
