|Alternative name||taste receptor, type 2, member 16 (TAS2R16, T2R16)|
|Immunogen||A synthetic peptide as a part of human taste receptor, type 2, member 16 (TAS2R16, T2R16) conjugated to immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen.|
|Description||This gene encodes a member of a family of candidate taste receptors that are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. These family members are specifically expressed by taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelia. Each of these apparently intronless genes encodes a 7-transmembrane receptor protein, functioning as a bitter taste receptor. This gene is clustered with another 3 candidate taste receptor genes in chromosome 7 and is genetically linked to loci that influence bitter perception. FUNCTION: Gustducin-coupled receptor implicated in the perception of bitter compounds in the oral cavity and the gastrointestinal tract. Signals through PLCB2 and the calcium-regulated cation channel TRPM5. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in a subset of gustducin-positive taste receptor cells of the tongue. POLYMORPHISM: The Lys-172 polymorphism in TAS2R16 is associated with genetic susceptibility to alcoholism [MIM:103780]. MISCELLANEOUS: Several bitter taste receptors are expressed in a single taste receptor cell. MISCELLANEOUS: Confers bitter perception of salicin to non-taster mice. Also known as: Taste receptor type 2 member 16, TAS2R16, T2R16.|
|Specificity||Appears to be specific for TAS2R16.|
|Application Notes||IHC, WB. A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 2000 is recommended. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user. Not yet tested in other applications.|
|Storage||Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.|
