Using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), we identified a gene family including more than 60 members which encoded similar G protein-coupled seven-transmembrane receptors. Sequence analyses of six representatives out of the 60 PCR clones showed that they had significant structural similarity to olfactory and optic receptors. Their expression is restricted in the surface of lingual epithelia.
