Whole nerve chorda tympani responses to sweeteners in C57BL/6ByJ and 129P3/J mice



Whole nerve chorda tympani responses to sweeteners in C57BL/6ByJ and 129P3/J mice



Chemical Senses 26(7): 915-923



The C57BL/6ByJ (B6) strain of mice exhibits higher preferences than does the 129P3/J (129) strain for a variety of sweet tasting compounds. We measured gustatory afferent responses of the whole chorda tympani nerve in these two strains using a broad array of sweeteners and other taste stimuli. Neural responses were greater in B6 than in 129 mice to the sugars sucrose and maltose, the polyol D-sorbitol and the non-caloric sweeteners Na saccharin, acesulfame-K, SC-45647 and sucralose.
