- Tonic activity of Galpha-gustducin regulates taste cell responsivityTod R Clapp
Department of Biomedical Sciences, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523, United States
FEBS Lett 582:3783-7. 2008..We propose that an important role of alpha-gus is to maintain cAMP levels tonically low to ensure adequate Ca2+ signaling...
- Amiloride-sensitive channels in type I fungiform taste cells in mouseAurelie Vandenbeuch
Department of Biomedical Science, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, USA
BMC Neurosci 9:1. 2008..We also used immunocytochemistry to further define and compare cell types in fungiform and circumvallate taste buds of these mice...
- Morphologic characterization of rat taste receptor cells that express components of the phospholipase C signaling pathwayTod R Clapp
Department of Biomedical Sciences, Anatomy and Neurobiology Section, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado 80523, USA
J Comp Neurol 468:311-21. 2004..We speculate that some type II cells may communicate to the nervous system via subsurface cisternae of smooth endoplasmic reticulum in lieu of conventional synapses...
- Nasal solitary chemoreceptor cell responses to bitter and trigeminal stimulants in vitroBrian D Gulbransen
Rocky Mountain Taste and Smell Center, University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, Aurora, CO 80045, USA
J Neurophysiol 99:2929-37. 2008..Our results demonstrate that TRPM5- and gustducin-expressing nasal SCCs respond to the T2R agonist denatonium via a PLC-coupled transduction cascade typical of T2Rs in the taste system...
- TRPV1 receptors and nasal trigeminal chemesthesisWayne L Silver
Department of Biology, Wake Forest University, Winston Salem, NC 27106, USA
Chem Senses 31:807-12. 2006..These results suggest that TRPV1 serves as a receptor for both cyclohexanone and capsaicin in trigeminal nerve endings...
