  • Official Full Name
  • taste receptor, type 2, member 16
  • Background
  • 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.
  • Synonyms
  • TAS2R16; taste receptor, type 2, member 16; taste receptor type 2 member 16; T2R16; candidate taste receptor T2R16
