Identification of phospholipase C β downstream effect on transient receptor potential canonical 1/4, transient receptor potential canonical 1/5 channels

Ko J, Myeong J, Kwak M, Jeon JH, So I

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2019 Sep;23(5):357-366.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2019.23.5.357
Gα(q)-coupled receptor stimulation was implied in the activation process of transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC)1/4 and TRPC1/5 heterotetrameric channels. The inactivation occurs due to phosphatidylinositol 4,5-biphosphate (PI(4,5)P₂) depletion. When PI(4,5)P₂...
