A taste bud contains four types of cells, type I, type II, type III cells, and basal cells. Taste buds were isolated from a tongue of a p53-deficient mouse at day 12, and 11 clonal taste bud (TBD) cell lines were established. In immunochemical analysis, all cell lines expressed cytokeratin 18, gustducin, T1R3, and neural cellular adhesion molecule, but not GLAST...
