<p>苦味感覚は食物中の毒物を感知するのに重要な役割を果たしており,苦味受容体(TAS2R)を介して知覚される。苦味受容体を活性化する苦味物質はこれまで数多く同定されてきたが,受容体の機能を抑制する阻害物質の報告は少ない。真猿類は20-30個の苦味受容体を持つが,その一つであるTAS2R16は,ヒト上科や旧世界ザルにおいてβグルコシドによって特異的に活性化される。βグルコシドは植物の主要な二次代謝産物であり,毒性を示す青酸配糖体などを含む。本研究では,キツネザル類3種において,TAS2R1...

<p>旧世界ザルには,種子や果実食傾向の強いオナガザル亜科,複雑な胃をもち葉食傾向の強いコロブス亜科が含まれる。一部の葉には毒性を示す二次代謝産物が含まれており,動物は苦味受容体(TAS2R)によりこれらの物質を検知して食物選択をしている。これまでに旧世界ザルを対象にした全苦味受容体遺伝子(TAS2R)の多様性解析を行った。その結果,コロブス亜科の多くのTAS2Rはオナガザル亜科と同様に保存的進化傾向を示す一方で,一部のTAS2Rは多様化しているこ...
