TRPV4 and hypotonic stress

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

TRPV4 was identified as the mammalian homologue of the C. elegans osmosensory channel protein, OSM-9. This nonselective cation channel is activated in vitro by even modest degrees of hypotonic cell swelling. Its expression in the mammalian central nervous system and kidney suggests a role in systemic osmoregulation-a view borne out by detailed balance studies in TRPV4-null mice. Two distinct mechanisms have been described through which TRPV4 may be activated by hypotonicity: one involves the SRC family of nonreceptor protein tyrosine kinases, while the other is mediated via arachidonic acid metabolites.
