Summary "Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) channels have gained a lot of popularity in recent years due to their involvement in a wide variety of cellular functions in many different systems. The purpose of this book is to provide detailed methods for the study of TRP channels. It includes expression and functional studies of TRP channels in heterologous systems as well as structural and functional studies of TRP channels. The author also explores various methods for detailed analysis of biophysical properties of TRP channels. In addition, the text covers high-throughput screening assays for TRP channels and offers novel and effective approaches to study endogenous TRP channel function in native systems"--Provided by publisher
