Title Dynamic evolution of bitter taste receptor genes in vertebrates Type Journal Article
Year 2009 Publication BMC Evolutionary Biology Abbreviated Journal
Volume 9 Issue 1 Pages 12
Abstract Sensing bitter tastes is crucial for many animals because it can prevent them from ingesting harmful foods. This process is mainly mediated by the bitter taste receptors (T2R), which are largely expressed in the taste buds. Previous studies have identified some T2R gene repertoires, and marked variation in repertoire size has been noted among species. However, the mechanisms underlying the evolution of vertebrate T2R genes remain poorly understood.
