Taste receptor type 2 member 50 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TAS2R50 gene.[1][2][3][4]

TAS2R50 belongs to the large TAS2R receptor family. TAS2Rs are expressed on the surface of taste receptor cells and mediate the perception of bitterness through a G protein-coupled second messenger pathway (Conte et al., 2002). See also TAS2R10 (MIM 604791).[supplied by OMIM][4]
