GeneCards Summary for TRPM8 Gene

TRPM8 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel, Subfamily M, Member 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRPM8 include dentin sensitivity. Among its related pathways are CREB Pathway and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPM1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPM8 Gene

  • Receptor-activated non-selective cation channel involved in detection of sensations such as coolness, by being activated by cold temperature below 25 degrees Celsius. Activated by icilin, eucalyptol, menthol, cold and modulation of intracellular pH. Involved in menthol sensation. Permeable for monovalent cations sodium, potassium, and cesium and divalent cation calcium. Temperature sensing is tightly linked to voltage-dependent gating. Activated upon depolarization, changes in temperature resulting in graded shifts of its voltage-dependent activation curves. The chemical agonist menthol functions as a gating modifier, shifting activation curves towards physiological membrane potentials. Temperature sensitivity arises from a tenfold difference in the activation energies associated with voltage-dependent opening and closing. In prostate cancer cells, shows strong inward rectification and high calcium selectivity in contrast to its behavior in normal cells which is characterized by outward rectification and poor cationic selectivity. Plays a role in prostate cancer cell migration (PubMed:25559186). Isoform 2 and isoform 3 negatively regulate menthol- and cold-induced channel activity by stabilizing the closed state of the channel.

Tocris Summary for TRPM8 Gene

  • The melastatin-related receptor family (TRPM) is the largest subfamily of the transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily of ion channels. It contains 8 known members, subdivided into 4 groups, which perform a range of functions including detection of taste and osmolarity, and control of cell proliferation.

    Size:
    1104 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    127685 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homotetramer (By similarity). Isoform 2 and isoform 3 interact with the C-terminus of isoform 1 in a thermosensitive manner with decreased interaction at 21 degrees Celsius compared to 37 degrees Celsius. Interacts (via N-terminus and C-terminus domains) with TCAF1; the interaction stimulates TRPM8 channel activity (PubMed:25559186). Interacts (via N-terminus and C-terminus domains) with TCAF2 isoform 2; the interaction inhibits TRPM8 channel activity (PubMed:25559186).
    Miscellaneous:
    • Its expression in most prostate tumors as well as the presence of an immunogenic epitope suggest that it may be suitable for the design of peptide vaccination strategies for prostate cancers
    • The sensation of coolness triggered by eucalyptol or menthol may be explained by the fact that menthol and cool temperatures sensations are detected by this protein
