ADP-ribose gating of the calcium-permeable LTRPC2 channel revealed by Nudix motif homology
Free ADP-ribose (ADPR), a product of NAD hydrolysis and a breakdown product of the calcium-release second messenger cyclic ADPR (cADPR), has no defined role as an intracellular signalling molecule inExpand

Regulation of Vertebrate Cellular Mg2+ Homeostasis by TRPM7
TRPM7 is a polypeptide with intrinsic ion channel and protein kinase domains whose targeted deletion causes cells to experience growth arrest within 24 hr and eventually die. Here, we show that whileExpand

TRPM4 Is a Ca2+-Activated Nonselective Cation Channel Mediating Cell Membrane Depolarization
Calcium-activated nonselective (CAN) cation channels are expressed in various excitable and nonexcitable cells supporting important cellular responses such as neuronal bursting activity, fluidExpand

CRACM1 Multimers Form the Ion-Selective Pore of the CRAC Channel
Receptor-mediated Ca(2+) release from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is often followed by Ca(2+) entry through Ca(2+)-release-activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channels in the plasma membrane . RNAi screensExpand

CRACM1, CRACM2, and CRACM3 Are Store-Operated Ca2+ Channels with Distinct Functional Properties
STIM1 in the endoplasmic reticulum and CRACM1 in the plasma membrane are essential molecular components for controlling the store-operated CRAC current. CRACM1 proteins multimerize and bind STIM1,Expand

TRPM7 Provides an Ion Channel Mechanism for Cellular Entry of Trace Metal Ions
Trace metal ions such as Zn2+, Fe2+, Cu2+, Mn2+, and Co2+ are required cofactors for many essential cellular enzymes, yet little is known about the mechanisms through which they enter into cells. WeExpand

TRPM2-mediated Ca2+ influx induces chemokine production in monocytes that aggravates inflammatory neutrophil infiltration
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) induce chemokines responsible for the recruitment of inflammatory cells to sites of injury or infection. Here we show that the plasma membrane Ca2+-permeable channelExpand

Cyclic ADP-ribose and hydrogen peroxide synergize with ADP-ribose in the activation of TRPM2 channels.
The melastatin-related transient receptor potential channel TRPM2 is a plasma membrane Ca2+-permeable cation channel that is activated by intracellular adenosine diphosphoribose (ADPR) binding to theExpand

Amplification of CRAC current by STIM1 and CRACM1 (Orai1)
Depletion of intracellular calcium stores activates store-operated calcium entry across the plasma membrane in many cells. STIM1, the putative calcium sensor in the endoplasmic reticulum, and theExpand

TRPM4 Regulates Calcium Oscillations After T Cell Activation
TRPM4 has recently been described as a calcium-activated nonselective (CAN) cation channel that mediates membrane depolarization. However, the functional importance of TRPM4 in the context of calciumExpand
