    Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, 80523, USA
    J Neurophysiol 88:133-41. 2002
    ..The large amplitude of the current and its existence in a high percentage of taste cells imply that ASICs or ASIC-like channels may play a prominent role in sour-taste transduction...

    Weihong Lin
    Department of Biomedical Sciences, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523, USA
    J Neurophysiol 89:1434-9. 2003
