The classic type of transient receptor potential channel (TRPC) is a molecular candidate for Ca(2+)-permeable cation channel in mammalian cells. TRPC5 is desensitized rapidly after activation by G protein-coupled receptor. Herein we report our investigation into the desensitization of mTRPC5 and localization of the molecular determinants of this(More)
The classic type of transient receptor potential channel (TRPC) is a molecular candidate for Ca(2+)-permeable cation channels in mammalian cells. Because TRPC channels have calmodulin (CaM) binding sites at their COOH termini, we investigated the effect of CaM on mTRPC5. TRPC5 was initially activated by muscarinic stimulation with 50 microM carbachol and(More)
Relaxation of the corpus cavernosum smooth muscle is an absolute prerequisite for penile erection. Potassium channels play a role in the physiologic regulation of corporal smooth muscle tone. In spite of the physiological importance of K(ATP) channel in the modulation of corporal smooth muscle tone, there is a shortage of information available about the(More)
Overexpression of the metastasis-associated gene 1 (MTA1) has previously been found to be associated with progression of various cancer types to the metastasis stage. The function of MTA1 in laryngeal squamous cell carci-noma (LSCC) remains unclear. To explore the significance of MTA1 in the invasion and migration processes in LSCC, gene transfection and(More)
