Structure of the Thermo-Sensitive TRP Channel TRP1 from the Alga Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii

Published on 09.16.2019

Our structures of a new, uniquely folded, 2-fold symmetrical and highly temperature-sensitive TRP channel TRP1 from the alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii that opens in response to increased temperature and is positively regulated by the membrane lipid PIP2 (phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate) have been published in Nature Communications.
