You Have Taste Receptors Where You Won't Expect

To improve high-throughput antibody purification, GenScript is launching AmMag™ Monofinity™ A magnetic beads. These MagBeads have the same high binding capacity as protein A MagBeads MX, but are also alkaline stable (0.1- 0.5 M NaOH). Rinse, reuse, enjoy!

Taste receptors occur in multiple different organs. More than 10,000 compounds are able to trigger the taste receptors in the mouth, gut, even the uterus. These receptors affect central processes such as digestion, respiration and reproduction. New research indicates that taste receptors in the uterus have a role in birth timing, specifically preventing pre-term birth.
