Transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) channels are associated with calcium entry activity in nonexcitable cells. TRPCs can form homo- or heterotetrameric channels, in which case they can assemble together within a subfamily groups. TRPC1, 4, and 5 represent one group, and TRPC3, 6, and 7 represent the other. The molecular determinants involved in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The Alzheimer drug memantine (1-amino-3,5-dimethyl-adamantane) blocks the pore channel of the NMDA receptor. Since memantine also blocks the 5-HT(3) receptor, neuronal nicotinic receptor, and voltage-activated Na(+) channels, the purpose of our study was to verify whether memantine could influence other types of channels involved in the(More)
