    ..These data provide strong support for the view that loss of taste receptor function in mammals is widespread and directly related to feeding specializations...

    ..We consider possible explanations for retained sweet perception in this species, including the potential extra-oral functions of sweet taste receptors that may be required for animals that consume plants. ..

    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, PA 19104
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 111:16401-6. 2014
    ..Together, our data demonstrate that functional taste cells can be generated ex vivo from single Lgr5(+) or Lgr6(+) cells, validating the use of this model for the study of taste cell generation. ..
