Thermo-TRP channels: biophysics of polymodal receptors.


In this chapter we discuss the polymodal activation of thermo-TRP channels using as exemplars two of the best characterized members of this class of channels: TRPM8 and TRPV1. Since channel activation by temperature is the hallmark of thermo-TRP channels, we present a detailed discussion on the thermodynamics involved in the gating processes by temperature… (More)
