26024668 Genotypes for the Val240Ile (rs10772423) SNP in TAS2R31 remains significant at a Bonferroni corrected alpha of 0.025.
21672920 Haplotype analyses revealed that most associations were spurious, arising from LD with variants in TAS2R31.
17702579 hT2R43 gene allele makes people more sensitive to the bitterness of an artificial sweetener, saccharin; in addition, a closely related gene's (hT2R44's) allele also makes people more sensitive to the bitterness of saccharin.
15537898 hTAS2R43 and hTAS2R44 function as cognate bitter taste receptors and do not contribute to the sweet taste of saccharin and acesulfame K.
15337684 Activation by denatonium and 6-nitrosaccharin.
