Nomenclature of Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels
As new Ca 2ϩ channel genes are cloned, it is apparent that these two alphabetical nomenclatures will overlap at ␣ 1L , which may not mediate an L-type Ca 2ϩ current and Voltage-gated Ca 2ϩ channelsExpand

Increased Vascular Smooth Muscle Contractility in TRPC6−/− Mice
ABSTRACT Among the TRPC subfamily of TRP (classical transient receptor potential) channels, TRPC3, -6, and -7 are gated by signal transduction pathways that activate C-type phospholipases as well asExpand

The TRP Channels, a Remarkably Functional Family
TRP cation channels display an extraordinary assortment of selectivities and activation mechanisms, some of which represent previously unrecognized modes for regulating ion channels. Moreover, theExpand

Functional interaction between InsP3 receptors and store-operated Htrp3 channels
Calcium ions are released from intracellular stores in response to agonist-stimulated production of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3), a second messenger generated at the cell membrane. DepletionExpand

Requirement of the inositol trisphosphate receptor for activation of store-operated Ca2+ channels.
The coupling mechanism between endoplasmic reticulum (ER) calcium ion (Ca2+) stores and plasma membrane (PM) store-operated channels (SOCs) is crucial to Ca2+ signaling but has eluded detection. SOCsExpand

TRPC3 Channels Are Required for Synaptic Transmission and Motor Coordination
In the mammalian central nervous system, slow synaptic excitation involves the activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs). It has been proposed that C1-type transient receptor potentialExpand

Receptor-activated Ca2+ Influx via Human Trp3 Stably Expressed in Human Embryonic Kidney (HEK)293 Cells
Ca2+ release from its internal stores as a result of activation of phospholipase C is accompanied by Ca2+ influx from the extracellular space. Ca2+influx channels may be formed of proteins homologousExpand

Identification of Common Binding Sites for Calmodulin and Inositol 1,4,5-Trisphosphate Receptors on the Carboxyl Termini of Trp Channels*
Homologues of Drosophila Trp (transient receptor potential) form plasma membrane channels that mediate Ca2+ entry following the activation of phospholipase C by cell surface receptors. Among theExpand

Orai proteins interact with TRPC channels and confer responsiveness to store depletion
The TRPC (C-type transient receptor potential) class of ion channels has been hypothesized to participate in store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE). Recently, however, STIM1 and Orai1 proteins have beenExpand

Direct interaction of Gβγ with a C-terminal Gβγ-binding domain of the Ca2+ channel α1 subunit is responsible for channel inhibition by G protein-coupled receptors
Several classes of voltage-gated Ca2+ channels (VGCCs) are inhibited by G proteins activated by receptors for neurotransmitters and neuromodulatory peptides. Evidence has accumulated to indicate thatExpand
