Abstract

Recent molecular studies proposed that the T1r1T1r3 heterodimer, mGluR1 and mGluR4 might function as umami taste receptors in mice. However, the roles of each of these receptors in umami taste are not yet clear. In this paper, we summarize recent data for T1r3, mGluR1, and mGluR4 as umami taste receptors and discuss receptor systems responsible for umami detection in mice.
