Abstract

Sweet and bitter taste distinguishes good food sources from potential toxins, but what happens when these tastants are mixedα In this issue of Neuron, Jeong etal. (2013) show that in Drosophila, bitter compounds act through an extracellular odorant-binding protein to inhibit sweet-responsive neurons and block the response to sweet taste
