Journal Highlight

Nerve-independent and ectopically additional induction of taste buds in organ culture of fetal tongues Taste buds are chemoreceptors that function in the gustatory system. They are localized mainly in the tongue gustatory epithelium in mice. A taste bud is an aggregate of fusiform taste cells and the innervation of gustatory nerves sustains the turn-over of taste cells. The first emergence of a taste bud, however, occurs nerve-independently at embryonic days, and fetal tongues in organ culture (without innervation) never develop taste buds. To challenge this inconsistency, the present study planned to establish a new organ culture method to develop...
