Modulation of temperature-sensitive TRP channels.

Abstract

Animals sense temperature--either cold or hot--by the direct activation of temperature-sensitive members of the TRP family of ion channels, the thermo-TRPs. To date, six TRP channels--TRPV1-4, TRPM8 and TRPA1--have been reported to be directly activated by heat and to be involved in thermosensation. Temperature sensing can be modulated by phosphorylation of… (More)
