The 38 papers here cover structural studies of the sweetener receptor (including the genetic architecture of sweet taste, the detection of sweet stimuli and in vitro models), modeling of the sweetener receptor (including crystal structures of the sweet protein MNEI, molecular models and computational procedures), sweet taste transduction (including psychophysical studies, bitter-sweet interactions and the role of the taste buds), quantifying the reposes of sweet-sensitive taste bud cells, including perception and the acceptance of sweeteners), modulation of sweet-sensitive taste bud cell signaling, and advances in synthetic and natural non-calorie sweeteners.
