Bacterial quinolones and bitter receptors

Thanks to everyone involved in our newly accepted J Biol Chem paper.  It has lots of live cell imaging of calcium indicators and fluorescent protein biosensors to look at signaling in response to T2R activation by a class of bacterial quorum-sensing ligands, quinolones, going from heterologous expression to primary differentiated air-liquid interface cultures.  Jenna is off to grad school at Einstein for neuroscience this summer, so it’s nice to get this one accepted before she leaves the lab.
