TRP channels: an overview


, : TRP channels: an overview. Cell Calcium 38(3-4): 233-252

The TRP ("transient receptor potential") family of ion channels now comprises more than 30 cation channels, most of which are permeable for Ca2+, and some also for Mg2+. On the basis of sequence homology, the TRP family can be divided in seven main subfamilies: the TRPC ('Canonical') family, the TRPV ('Vanilloid') family, the TRPM ('Melastatin') family, the TRPP ('Polycystin') family, the TRPML ('Mucolipin') family, the TRPA ('Ankyrin') family, and the TRPN ('NOMPC') family. The cloning and characterization of members of this cation channel family has exploded during recent years, leading to a plethora of data on the roles of TRPs in a variety of tissues and species, including mammals, insects, and yeast. The present review summarizes the most pertinent recent evidence regarding the structural and functional properties of TRP channels, focusing on the regulation and physiology of mammalian TRPs.

Although the study of Mississippian calcareous foraminifers in North America dates back to the mid-1800s, detailed work first began a century later when C. Cooper (1947), E. Zeller (1950, 1957), D. Zeller (1953), and R. Woodland (1958) published t...

The growth hormone gene has been used to infer phylogenetic relationships in fishes, and in closely related species the intronic sequence has shown particular value in discriminating among taxa. We examined the growth hormone gene in the esocid f...

Recent evidence suggests that bupivacaine produces greater cardiodepression compared with ropivacaine, the mechanism(s) of which remains to be solved at the molecular level. Here we compared the effects of bupivacaine and ropivacaine on intracellu...
