Summaries for TRPV2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TRPV2 Gene

  • This gene encodes an ion channel that is activated by high temperatures above 52 degrees Celsius. The protein may be involved in transduction of high-temperature heat responses in sensory ganglia. It is thought that in other tissues the channel may be activated by stimuli other than heat. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TRPV2 Gene

TRPV2 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel, Subfamily V, Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRPV2 include dentin sensitivity. Among its related pathways are CREB Pathway and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium channel activity and ion channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPV6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPV2 Gene

  • Calcium-permeable, non-selective cation channel with an outward rectification. Seems to be regulated, at least in part, by IGF-I, PDGF and neuropeptide head activator. May transduce physical stimuli in mast cells. Activated by temperatures higher than 52 degrees Celsius; is not activated by vanilloids and acidic pH.

Tocris Summary for TRPV2 Gene

  • Vanilloids are a group of compounds, structurally related to capsaicin, thought to exert their actions via vanilloid receptors. The vanilloid receptor family (TRPV) is a subgroup of the transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily of ion channels, and six members (TRPV1-6) have so far been identified. The six vanilloid receptor members have been divided into four groups on the basis of structure and function: TRPV1/2, TRPV3, TRPV4 and TRPV5/6. TRPV1-4 are thermosensitive, non-selective cation channels that exist as tetrameric complexes. They are activated by a range of stimuli including heat, protons, lipids and changes in osmolarity or pressure. TRPV5-6 are calcium selective channels that are involved in the absorption and reabsorption of calcium across intestinal and renal epithelia. It has been proposed that cannabinoids are endogenous ligands for vanilloid receptors. Furthermore, adenosine has been shown to be an endogenous TRPV1 ligand and TRPV4 is activated by anandamide and arachidonic acid.
