Washington, Sep 23 (ANI): A new study has hypothesized that genetic variation in taste pathway genes (TAS2R38, TAS1R2, GNAT3) may be associated with dental caries risk and/or protection.
Statistically significant associations were seen in TAS2R38 and TAS1R2 for caries risk and/or protection.
The researchers correlated the scores with variations in two sugar-sensing genes, TAS1R3 and TAS1R2, and found two variants just outside of the TAS1R3 gene that seemed to predict their volunteer's scores.
