In RS models of warped extra dimensions with SM fields in the bulk, two scalar excitations are expected to be the lightest new particles discovered at the LHC: the Higgs scalar and the radion graviscalar. Both couple in similar fashion with matter and could actually mix. The fact that fermions propagate in the bulk will induce tree level flavor changing couplings between fermions and both scalars, therefore setting bounds on the model parameters and inducing interesting phenomenological predictions to be tested at the LHC.
