T1R1 and T1R3 and Umami Taste

Diagrammatic depiction of the G-protein coupled receptors T1R1 and T1R3 and the chemical pathway that results when these proteins are stimulated by glutamate. The most common form of glutamate is monosodium glutamate, or MSG, giving rise to the Umami taste that makes Chinese food taste so delicious. Created in Adobe Illustrator.
