rs713598 is a SNP of the TAS2R38 gene. It is significantly associated with the ability to perceive bitter taste.

The ''C'' allele determines the sensitivity to phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) (p<0.001). ''C'' allele carriers displayed diminished consumption of type B vegetables as well as of some vegetables generally recognized as bitter: arugula (p=0.044) and chard (p=0.006) [R].
