This gene product belongs to the family of candidate tastereceptors that are members of the G-protein-coupled receptorsuperfamily. These proteins are specifically expressed in the tastereceptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelia. They areorganized in the genome in clusters and are genetically linked toloci that influence bitter perception in mice and humans. Infunctional expression studies, they respond to bitter tastants.This gene maps to the taste receptor gene cluster on chromosome12p13.
