|Other Names||Taste receptor type 2 member 31, T2R31, Taste receptor type 2 member 44, T2R44, Taste receptor type 2 member 53, T2R53, TAS2R31, TAS2R44|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor that may play a role in the perception of bitterness and is gustducin-linked. May play a role in sensing the chemical composition of the gastrointestinal content. The activity of this receptor may stimulate alpha gustducin, mediate PLC-beta-2 activation and lead to the gating of TRPM5 (By similarity). Activated by the sulfonyl amide sweeteners saccharin and acesulfame K.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in subsets of taste receptor cells of the tongue and exclusively in gustducin-positive cells|

TAS2R44 belongs to the large TAS2R receptor family. TAS2Rsare expressed on the surface of taste receptor cells and mediatethe perception of bitterness through a G protein-coupled secondmessenger pathway (Conte et al., 2002 [PubMed 12584440]). Forfurther information on TAS2Rs, see MIM 604791.
