He then placed these taste stem cells in a culture dish and prompted them to grow into the different mature taste cell types, thus creating a taste bud in a dish: taste organoids.
Individual mouse taste cells respond to multiple chemical stimuli.
Future studies will focus on identifying the factors that program the Lgr5-expressing cells to differentiate into the different taste cell types, and explore how to grow these cells in culture, thus providing a renewable source of taste receptor cells for research and perhaps even clinical use.
