26377569 dental plaque amount, lactobacilli count, age, and saliva buffer capacity, as well as CA6 (T55M) gene polymorphism, explained total of 87.8% of variations in DMFT scores.
26125798 We also found that the haplotype (ACA) (rs2274328, rs17032907 and rs11576766)of the carbonic anhydrase VI was associated with a low number of decayed, missing, and filled teeth index with an odds ratio (95% confidence interval) of 0.635 (0.440-0.918).
25447475 Study showed that PROP (6-n-propylthiouracil) bitterness was due to TAS2R38 diplotypes, whereas the density of fungiform papillae was more closely associated with gustin genotypes
24534176 SNPs associated with taste perception and taste bud anatomy
24040192 The rs2274333 polymorphism of the gustin gene affects PROP sensitivity.
23652931 results suggest that polymorphisms in the CA6 gene are associated with the concentrations of secreted CA VI.
22366092 The 1.9A crystal structure of the human CA VI catalytic domain reveals a prototypical mammalian CA fold, and a novel dimeric arrangement as compared to previously-reported CA structures.
22198626 The aim of this study was to investigate carbonic anhydrase (CA) VI Exon 2 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and its possible association with salivary parameters in type 2 diabetic patients compared to healthy adults.
21712049 The data of this study showed how the combination of the TAS2R38 and gustin gene genotypes modulate PROP phenotype.
21631296 The polymerase chain reaction followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism assay described here can be used as an alternative to sequencing in bitter taster status research, and could be employed as a survey tool in nutrigenomic studies.
