Topology of the selectivity filter of a TRPV channel: rapid accessibility of contiguous residues from the external medium.


The transient receptor potential type V5 (TRPV5) channel is a six-transmembrane domain ion channel that is highly selective to Ca(2+). To study the topology of the selectivity filter using the substituted cysteine accessibility method (SCAM), cysteine mutants at positions 541-547 were studied as heterotetramers using dimeric constructs that couple the… (More)
