Store-regulated Ca2+ entry represents a major mechanism for Ca2+ influx in non-excitable cells although many details remain to be evaluated including the identification of cation entry channels. Recently human homologues of the Drosophila proteins TRP and TRPL, have been described (TRPC1, TRPC1A, HTRP1) and suggested as candidate cation channels. In this study we sought to examine if the producers of blood platelets, megakaryocytic cells (using the cell lines MEG01, DAMI, HEL), expressed these… CONTINUE READING
