Centre des Sciences du Goût et de l’Alimentation
Welcome to the Centre for Taste and Feeding Behavior (CSGA). Starting in 2010, this laboratory is one the main international research Centre in this field. We hope that this web site will offer to the scientific community, students, actors of the socio-economic world and to the public in general, information on the works done and their application to science and society.
Insulin release by leucine: a new partner revealed
Since several years, Yaël Grosjean's team team is interested in the properties of dietary leucine, an amino acid capable of stimulating insulin release. In 2016, this team had highlighted the fundamental role played by an amino acid transporter in insulin release. In an article just published in Scientific Reports, these researchers demonstrate that a second transporter is involved.
