The injury phase after myocardial infarcts occurs during reperfusion and is a consequence of calcium release from internal stores combined with calcium entry, leading to cell death by apoptopic and necrotic processes. The mechanism(s) by which calcium enters cells has(ve) not been identified. Here, we identify canonical transient receptor potential channels (TRPC) 3 and 6 as the cation channels through which most of the damaging calcium enters cells to trigger their death, and we describe mechanisms activated during the injury phase...

Transient receptor potential (TRP) channels play important functional roles in the signal transduction machinery of hormone-secreting cells and have recently been implicated in reproductive physiology. While expression studies have demonstrated TRP channel expression at all levels of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (hpg) axis, functional details about TRP channel action at the level of the individual cells controlling reproduction are just beginning to emerge. Canonical TRP (TRPC) channels are prominently expressed in the reproductive center of the neuroendocrine brain, i...

Glioma is the most common type of brain tumors and malignant glioma is extremely lethal, with patients' 5-year survival rate less than 10%. Treatment of gliomas poses remarkable clinical challenges, not only because of their particular localization but also because glioma cells possess several malignant biological features, including highly proliferative, highly invasive, highly angiogenic, and highly metabolic aberrant. All these features make gliomas highly recurrent and drug resistant. Finding new and effective molecular drug targets for glioma is an urgent and critical task for both basic and clinical research...

TRPCs have been demonstrated to be widely expressed in different cancers. In recent years, a number of studies closely investigated the roles of TRPCs in cancer cells. Most of the results show that both mRNA and protein levels of TRPCs significantly increase in cancer tissues compared with healthy controls. TRPCs regulate Ca(2+) homeostasis, contribute to cell cycle regulation and the expression/activation of Ca(2+)-related factors, and thus play critical roles in the proliferation of cancer cells. Therefore, TRPCs could act as potential drug targets for cancer diagnosis and therapy...

Transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) channels mediate the influx of different types of cations through the cell membrane and are involved in many functions of the organism. Evidences of involvement of TRPC channels in neuronal development suggest that this family of proteins might play a role in certain neurological disorders. As reported, knockout mice for different TRPC channels show alterations in neuronal morphological and functional parameters, with behavioral abnormalities, such as in exploratory and social behaviors...

Accumulating evidence suggest that TRPC channels play critical roles in various aspects of epileptogenesis. TRPC1/4 channels are major contributors to nonsynaptically derived epileptiform burst firing in the CA1 and the lateral septum. TRPC7 channels play a critical role in synaptically derived epileptiform burst firing. The reduction of spontaneous epileptiform bursting in the CA3 is correlated to a reduction in pilocarpine-induced SE in vivo in TRPC7 knockout mice. TRPC channels are also significant contributors to SE-induced neuronal cell death...

Nonresolving low-grade inflammation is supposed to underly the basis of chronic disorders including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and psychiatric disorders such as depression and Alzheimer's diseases. There is increasing evidence suggesting that pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders is related to the inflammatory responses mediated by microglial cells. Elevation of intracellular Ca(2+) is important for the activation of microglial cell functions, including proliferation, release of NO, cytokines, and BDNF...

In this chapter, we mainly focus on the functions of TRPC channels in brain development, including neural progenitor proliferation, neurogenesis, neuron survival, axon guidance, dendritic morphology, synaptogenesis, and neural plasticity. We also notice emerging advances in understanding the functions of TRPC channels in periphery, especially their functions in sensation and nociception in dorsal root ganglion (DRG). Because TRPC channels are expressed in all major types of glial cells, which account for at least half of total cells in the brain, TRPC channels may act as modulators for glial functions as well...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder, which involves degeneration of dopaminergic neurons that are present in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) region. Many factors have been identified that could lead to Parkinson's disease; however, almost all of them are directly or indirectly dependent on Ca(2+) signaling. Importantly, though disturbances in Ca(2+) homeostasis have been implicated in Parkinson's disease and other neuronal diseases, the identity of the calcium channel remains elusive...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world. The "amyloid hypothesis" is one of the predominant hypotheses for the pathogenesis of AD. Besides, tau protein accumulation, calcium homeostasis disruption, and glial cell activation are also remarkable features in AD. Recently, there are some reports showing that TRPC channels may function in AD development, especially TRPC6. In this chapter, we will discuss the evidence for the involvement of TRPC channels in Alzheimer's disease and the potential of therapeutics for AD based on TRPC channels...

TRPC channels play important roles in neuronal death/survival in ischemic stroke, vasospasm in hemorrhagic stroke, thrombin-induced astrocyte pathological changes, and also in the initiation of stroke by affecting blood pressure and atherogenesis. TRPCs' unique channel characters and downstream pathways make them possible new targets for stroke therapy. TRPC proteins have different functions in different cell types. Considering TRPCs' extensive distribution in various tissues and cell types, drugs targeting them could induce more complicated effects...

Neurotrophins, including nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), bind to their high-affinity receptors to promote neuronal survival during brain development. One of the key downstream pathways is the phospholipase C (PLC) pathway, which not only plays a central role in calcium release from internal store but also in activation of TRPC channels coupled with neurotrophin receptors. TRPC channels are required for the neurotrophin-mediated neuronal protective effects. In addition, activation of TRPC channels is able to protect neurons in the absence of neurotrophin...

This chapter offers a brief introduction of the functions of TRPC channels in non-neuronal systems. We focus on three major organs of which the research on TRPC channels have been most focused on: kidney, heart, and lung. The chapter highlights on cellular functions and signaling pathways mediated by TRPC channels. It also summarizes several inherited diseases in humans that are related to or caused by TRPC channel mutations and malfunction. A better understanding of TRPC channels functions and the importance of TRPC channels in health and disease should lead to new insights and discovery of new therapeutic approaches for intractable disease...

TRPC channels are the first identified members in the TRP family. They function as either homo- or heterotetramers regulating intracellular Ca(2+) concentration in response to numerous physiological or pathological stimuli. TRPC channels are nonselective cation channels permeable to Ca(2+). The properties and the functional domains of TRPC channels have been identified by electrophysiological and biochemical methods. However, due to the large size, instability, and flexibility of their complexes, the structures of the members in TRPC family remain unrevealed...

The transient receptor potential (TRP) ion channels are named after the discovery of the photo-transducted channels in Drosophila. TRPs, activated by various extracellular and intracellular stimuli, play a plethora of physiological and pathological roles. There are seven families of TRPs including TRPC (canonical), TRPV (vanilloid), TRPM (melastatin), TRPA (ankyrin), TRPP (polycystin), TRPML (mucolipin), and TRPN (Drosophila NOMPC) in mammals. In yeast, the eighth TRP family was recently identified and named as TRPY...

We investigated the role of Na(+)/ Ca(2+) exchange (NCX) in the refilling of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) in vascular endothelial cells under various conditions of cell stimulation and plasma membrane (PM) polarization. Better understanding of the mechanisms behind basic ER Ca(2+) content regulation is important, since current hypotheses on the possible ultimate causes of ER stress point to deterioration of the Ca(2+) transport mechanism to/from ER itself. We measured [Ca(2+)]i temporal changes by Fura-2 fluorescence under experimental protocols that inhibit a host of transporters (NCX, Orai, non-selective transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) channels, sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) ATPase (SERCA), Na(+)/ K(+) ATPase (NKA)) involved in the Ca(2+) communication between the extracellular space and the ER...

Doxorubicin (DOX)-induced cardiotoxicity is a clinically complex syndrome that leads to significant pain to cancer survivors. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has been suggested to be an important contributor to myocardium dysfunction during this phenomenon. Our previous study proved that Salvianolic acid B (Sal B) protected against doxorubicin induced cardiac dysfunction by inhibiting ER stress and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. However, the underlying molecular mechanism is not yet clearly. In this study, we investigated the protective effect and mechanisms of Sal B againest DOX-induced cardiac injury and ER stress in vivo and in vitro...

Life is maintained in a sea water-like internal environment. The homeostasis of this environment is dependent on osmosensory system translation of hydromineral information into osmotic regulatory machinery at system, tissue and cell levels. In the osmosensation, hydromineral information can be converted into cellular reactions through osmoreceptors, which changes thirst and drinking, secretion of antidiuretic vasopressin (VP), reabsorption of water and salt in the kidneys at systemic level as well as cellular metabolic activity and survival status at tissue level...

Transient receptor potential canonical 3/6/7 (TRPC3/6/7) are highly homologous receptor-operated nonselective cation channels. Despite their physiological significance, very few selective and potent agonists are available for functional examination of these channels. Using a cell-based high throughput screening approach, a lead compound with the pyrazolopyrimidine skeleton was identified as a TRPC6 agonist. Synthetic schemes for the lead and its analogues were established, and structural-activity relationship studies were carried out...
