Taste receptor, type 2, member 16

hTAS2R16, TAS2R16, T2R16
This gene encodes a member of a family of candidate taste receptors that are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. These family members are specifically expressed by taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelia. Each of these apparently intronless genes encodes a 7-transmembrane receptor protein, functioning as a bitter taste receptor. This gene is clustered with another 3 candidate taste receptor genes in chromosome 7 and is genetically linked to loci that influence bitter perception. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Limited evidence for adaptive evolution and functional effect of allelic variation at rs702424 in the promoter of the TAS2R16 bitter taste receptor gene in Africa.
Tishkoff et al., Philadelphia, United States. In J Hum Genet, 2014
Prior studies have demonstrated that nonsynonymous variation at site 516 in the coding exon of TAS2R16, a bitter taste receptor gene on chromosome 7, has been subject to positive selection and is strongly correlated with differences in sensitivity to salicin, a bitter anti-inflammatory compound, in human populations.
Origin and differential selection of allelic variation at TAS2R16 associated with salicin bitter taste sensitivity in Africa.
Tishkoff et al., United States. In Mol Biol Evol, 2014
To better understand the genetic architecture and patterns of phenotypic variability of bitter taste perception, we sequenced a 996 bp region, encompassing the coding exon of TAS2R16, a bitter taste receptor gene, in 595 individuals from 74 African populations and in 94 non-Africans from 11 populations.
Classic selective sweeps revealed by massive sequencing in cattle.
Simianer et al., Göttingen, Germany. In Plos Genet, 2014
We find 106 candidate selection regions, many of which are harboring genes related to phenotypes relevant in domestication, such as coat coloring pattern, neurobehavioral functioning and sensory perception including KIT, MITF, MC1R, NRG4, Erbb4, TMEM132D and TAS2R16, among others.
Do polymorphisms in chemosensory genes matter for human ingestive behavior?
Allen et al., United States. In Food Qual Prefer, 2013
For example, TAS2R16 polymorphisms are linked to the bitterness of naturally occurring plant compounds and alcoholic beverage intake, a TAS2R19 polymorphism predicts differences in quinine bitterness and grapefruit bitterness and liking, and TAS2R31 polymorphisms associate with differential bitterness of plant compounds like aristolochic acid and the sulfonyl amide sweeteners saccharin and acesulfame-K.
Bitterness of the non-nutritive sweetener acesulfame potassium varies with polymorphisms in TAS2R9 and TAS2R31.
Hayes et al., United States. In Chem Senses, 2013
Conversely, single nucleotide polymorphisms in TAS2R4, TAS2R38, and near TAS2R16 were not significant predictors.
Identification of novel genes for bitter taste receptors in sheep (Ovis aries).

In sheep, we identified eight orthologs of cattle genes: T2R16, T2R10B, T2R12, T2R3, T2R4, T2R67, T2R13 and T2R5.
Assessment of the presence of chemosensing receptors based on bitter and fat taste in the gastrointestinal tract of young pig.
Bosi et al., Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy. In J Anim Sci, 2012
For 7 genes for bitter taste (TAS2R1, TAS2R3, TAS2R7, TAS2R9, TAS2R10, TAS2R16, and TAS2R38) and for 3 genes for fat taste (GPR40, GPR43, and GPR120), a full homology for exon sequences was found and primers were designed by Primer3.
