The physiological role, the mechanisms of activation, as well as the endogenous regulators for the non-selective cationic channel TRPV2 are not known so far. In the present work we report that endogenous lysophospholipids such as lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) and lysophosphatidylinositol (LPI) induce a calcium influx via TRPV2 channel. This activation is dependent on the length of the side-chain and the nature of the lysophospholipid head-group. TRPV2-mediated calcium uptake stimulated by LPC… CONTINUE READING
