(try to include technologies to detect abnormalities during pregnancy)

Current Research

In an animal study using mice Suzuki Y, Ikeda K, Kawakami K.(2011) stating that deficiencies in certain Six genes (specifically Six1 & Six4) leads to poor gustatory development. There is also evidence of a cooperative relationship between Six genes for normal development.[1] Another Animal Study involving mice explores a new idea of Neural crest contribution in taste development, specifically the development of papillae and taste buds. Liu HX, Komatsu Y, Mishina Y, Mistretta CM. (2012) suggest that Neural crest cells travel to the location of the tongue in early embryonic stages, gain epithelium phenotypes, multiply and then differentiate to eventually form taste papillae.
