Transient Receptor Potential Channels offers a unique blend of thoughtfully selected topics ranging from the structural biology of this fascinating group of ion channels to their emerging roles in human diseases. This single book covers TRP channels of yeasts, flies, fishes frogs and humans. And from the biophysics of primary thermo-sensory events in cells to the thermosensation at whole organism level, from physiology of pain to the development of pain-killers, from psychiatric illnesses to cancers, from skin cells to sperms, from taste buds to testes, from established facts to heated debates, this book contains something for every TRP enthusiasts, beginner and expert alike. It includes crucial background information, critical analysis of cutting edge research, and ideas and thoughts for numerous testable hypotheses. It also shows directions for future research in this highly dynamic field. It is a book readers will be just as eager to give to others as keep for themselves.

TRPP Channels and Polycystins

Alexis Hofherr and Michael Köttgen

The founding member of the TRPP family, TRPP2, was identified as one of the disease genes causing autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). ADPKD is the most prevalent, potentially lethal, monogenic disorder in humans, with an average incidence of one in 400 to one in 1,000 individuals worldwide. Here we give an overview of TRPP ion channels and Polycystin-1 receptor proteins focusing on more recent studies. We include the Polycystin-1 family since these proteins are functionally linked to TRPP channels
