    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:4956-61. 2012
    ..These data provide strong support for the view that loss of taste receptor function in mammals is widespread and directly related to feeding specializations...

    Monell Chemical Senses Center, 3500 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19104, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 10:e0139670. 2015
    ..Further comparative studies of factors driving numbers and functions of bitter taste receptors will aid in understanding the forces shaping their repertoire. ..

    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 9:e93043. 2014
    ..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. ..
  4. pmc Single Lgr5- or Lgr6-expressing taste stem/progenitor cells generate taste bud cells ex vivo
    Wenwen Ren
    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. ..
