Researchers Identify Candidate "Taste" Genes

SAN DIEGO, California – A collaborative effort between scientists at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) and Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has identified the genes likely responsible for the mammalian sense of taste. In the February 19 issue of the journal Cell, the researchers describe genes that encode two novel proteins expressed in cells specifically geared to the sense of taste. The isolation of the candidate taste receptor genes provides the groundwork necessary for manipulating the perception of taste and stimulating or blocking taste cell function. The discovery could one day hold implications for engineering foods to specific taste qualities.

Are New Treatments to Prevent Early Tooth Decay Just Around the Corner?

CHICAGO, Illinois – Devastating decay in primary (baby) teeth is a well-known threat to the oral health of infants and toddlers, but new research shows that relief may be close at hand. Periodic topical application of an antimicrobial solution to the teeth of children at high risk for early childhood caries (ECC) shows evidence of decreasing risks by suppressing high oral bacteria levels, as reported in the latest issue of the journal Pediatric Dentistry. Researchers believe this is a potential breakthrough in preventing rampant tooth decay in young children.
