26907331 In conclusion, the Val/Val genotype of TAS1R2 was associated with a higher carbohydrate intake and HTG.
26279452 The rs12033832 single nucleotide polymorphism in TAS1R2 is associated with sucrose taste and sugar intake, but the effect differs depending on BMI
25924601 high-risk caries experience (>8 caries) was found to be associated with TAS1R2 rs35874116 homozygous polymorphic genotype.
25029362 human and mouse membrane trafficking systems for sweet taste receptors T1r2 and T1r3
24068707 effects of artificial sweeteners on adipose tissue may be largely independent of the classical sweet taste receptors, T1R2 and T1R3
23349025 Interaction between brazzein and the amino terminal domain of the sweet receptor subunit T1R2 showed a stronger interaction at 7 degrees C than at 37 degrees C.; the low temperature conformation, alters the orientations of 2 loops known to be critical for the sweetness of brazzein, may represent the bound state of brazzei in the complex with the human sweet receptor.
23257979 associated with caries risk
22315413 Genetic ablation of the sweet TR protein T1R2 obliterates fructose-induced insulin release and its potentiating effects on glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in vitro and in vivo.
21540445 T1R2/T1R3 is involved in glucose-dependent secretion of satiation peptides
20943793 Our findings show that a genetic variation in TAS1R2 affects habitual consumption of sugars and may contribute to interindividual differences in changing behaviors in response to dietary counseling.
20943793 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20858777 significant associations were seen in TAS1R2 for caries risk and/or protection.
20858777 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20468064 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20302879 Results from mutagenesis and chimeras of the receptor indicated that brazzein interacts with both T1R2 and T1R3 and that the Venus flytrap module of T1R2 is important for brazzein agonism.
20173092 Data show that Positive allosteric modulators of the sweet taste receptor could help reduce the caloric content in food and beverages while maintaining the desired taste.
19664591 Interactions between the human sweet-sensing T1R2-T1R3 receptor and sweeteners detected by saturation transfer difference NMR spectroscopy.
17935609 Some of the amino acid positions crucial for activation of hTAS1R2+hTAS1R3 by neohesperidin dihydrochalcone are involved in the binding of allosteric modulators in other class C GPCRs
16633339 water rinses remove the inhibitor from the heteromeric sweetener receptor TAS1R2-TAS1R3, which activates cells and results in the perception of strong sweetness from pure water
14636554 sweet and umami taste are strictly dependent on T1R-receptors, and show that selective elimination of T1R-subunits differentially abolishes detection and perception of these two taste modalities
12706725 The mechanism of interaction of the sweet protein monellin with the T1R2-T1R3 receptor.
