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.
Enzymes are counter-attacking in the nasal mucus! Episode 1. The Rabbit.
In the nose, mucus prevents the tissues from drying out... but also plays an important role in olfactory perception. CSGA researchers have shown that this mucus contains enzymes capable of transforming odorous molecules to inactivate them.
When the nose creates new odours. Episode 2. The Rat.
CSGA researchers have shown that the inactivation of odorous molecules by nasal mucus enzymes can be accompanied by the appearance of new odorous molecules... and therefore new odours! This discovery follows on from the previous news.
