Bitter or Sweet? How Taste Cells Decide What They Want to Be

Monell Chemical Senses Center

A new study from the Monell Center and collaborating institutions advances understanding of how stem cells on the tongue grow into the different types of mature taste cells that detect either sweet, salty, sour, bitter, or umami. The findings may someday allow scientists to treat taste disorders, characterize new taste qualities, or even fine-tune a person’s taste perception to encourage healthier eating.

The Social Costs of Smell Loss in Older Women

Monell Chemical Senses Center

A new study of older U.S. adults from the Monell Center and collaborating institutions reports that a woman’s social life is associated with how well her sense of smell functions. The study found that older women who do less well on a smell identification task also tend to have fewer social connections.

Potential New Causes for the Odor-Producing Disorder TMAU

Monell Chemical Senses Center

A study from the Monell Center and collaborators provides new insight into the causes of trimethylaminura (TMAU), a genetically-transmitted metabolic disorder that leads to accumulation of a chemical that smells like rotting fish. Previously attributed solely to mutations in the FMO3 gene, the study identifies additional genes that may contribute to TMAU. The findings indicate that genetic testing to identify FMO3 mutations may not be sufficient to identify all underlying causes of TMAU.

Monell Center Receives Grant to Characterize Distinctive Odor of Ovarian Cancer

Monell Chemical Senses Center

A new grant from the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation will allow Monell scientists and collaborators to confirm initial findings of a unique odor pattern for ovarian cancer. The multi-disciplinary team will use the information to customize a portable screening device that can diagnose the deadly disease at early, treatable stages.
