P A V PAV PAV/PAV Taster
  1. Adapted from [11]. The terms 'taster' and 'nontaster' are used for convenience because there is a range of perceptual ability within each category. +49, +262 and +296 refer to amino acid locations in the TAS2R38 protein. The single letter notations refer to amino acids, e.g., A = Alanine.
