Immunogen A synthetic peptide from human taste receptor, type 2, member 5 (TAS2R5, TA2R5, T2R5) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen.
Specificity Appears to be specific for TAS2R5.
Purity whole serum
Alternative Name taste receptor, type 2, member 5 (TAS2R5, TA2R5, T2R5)
Background This gene encodes a bitter taste receptor, bitter taste receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily and are specifically expressed by taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelia. Each of these apparently intronless taste receptor genes encodes a 7-transmembrane receptor protein, functioning as a bitter taste receptor. This gene is clustered with another 3 candidate taste receptor genes on chromosome 7 and is genetically linked to loci that influence bitter perception.
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 5, T2R5, TAS2R5.
