Alternative Name taste receptor, type 2, member 1 (TAS2R1, TA2R1)
Background This gene encodes a member of a family of candidate taste receptors that are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily and that are specifically expressed by taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelia. This intronless taste receptor gene encodes a 7-transmembrane receptor protein, functioning as a bitter taste receptor. This gene is mapped to chromosome 5p15, the location of a genetic locus (PROP) that controls the detection of the bitter compound 6-n-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Function: Receptor that may play a role in the perception of bitterness and is gustducin-linked. May play a role in sensing the chemical composition of the gastrointestinal content. The activity of this receptor may stimulate alpha gustducin, mediate PLC-beta-2 activation and lead to the gating of TRPM5.
Subcellular location: Membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Expressed in subsets of taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelium and exclusively in gustducin-positive cells.
Miscellaneous: Most taste cells may be activated by a limited number of bitter compounds, individual taste cells can discriminate among bitter stimuli. Also known as: Taste receptor type 2 member 1, T2R1, Taste receptor family B member 7, TRB7, TAS2R1, TRB7, MGC126778, MGC126780.
