cDNA cloning and characterization of an osmotically sensitive TRP channel from ascidian eggs.


The transient receptor potential (TRP) ion channels are thought to be involved in the entry of calcium ion into cells. In this study, we isolated a cDNA clone, HrTRPV, that shows high homology to Caenorhabditis elegans OSM-9, a TRPV subfamily member of the TRP family, from a Halocynthia roretzi fertilized egg cDNA library. We analyzed its properties using… (More)
