Transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily M, member 1

melastatin, TRPM1
This gene encodes a member of the transient receptor potential melastatin subfamily of transient receptor potential ion channels. The encoded protein is a calcium permeable cation channel that is expressed in melanocytes and may play a role in melanin synthesis. Specific mutations in this gene are the cause autosomal recessive complete congenital stationary night blindness-1C. The expression of this protein is inversely correlated with melanoma aggressiveness and as such it is used as a prognostic marker for melanoma metastasis. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011] (from NCBI)

Citral activates in heterologous cells transient receptor potential vanilloid-1, ankyrin-1, and melastatin-8 (TRPV1, TRPA1, and TRPM8, respectively) channels, the activation of which in the spinal lamina II [substantia gelatinosa (SG)] increases the spontaneous release of L-glutamate from nerve terminals.

Over the last decade, several hereditary forms of hypomagnesemia have been deciphered, including mutations in transient receptor potential melastatin type 6 (TRPM6), claudin 16, and cyclin M2 (CNNM2).
The Genetics of Deafness in Domestic Animals.
Strain, Baton Rouge, United States. In Front Vet Sci, 2014
Across species, the genes identified with deafness or white pigmentation patterns include MITF, PMEL, KIT, EDNRB, CDH23, TYR, and TRPM1 in dog, cat, horse, cow, pig, sheep, ferret, mink, camelid, and rabbit.
Roles of TRPM8 Ion Channels in Cancer: Proliferation, Survival, and Invasion.
Yee, State College, United States. In Cancers (basel), 2014
The goal of this article is to provide a critical review of the transient receptor potential melastatin-subfamily member 8 (TRPM8) in cancers, with an emphasis on its roles in cellular proliferation, survival, and invasion.
Alterations in Kainate Receptor and TRPM1 Localization in Bipolar Cells after Retinal Photoreceptor Degeneration.
Puthussery et al., Portland, United States. In Front Cell Neurosci, 2014
In contrast, photoreceptor degeneration leads to loss of synaptic expression of TRPM1 in mouse and human On bipolar cells, but strong somatic expression remains.

The results expand the mutation spectrum of NYX, CACNA1F and GRM6. They also suggest that NYX mutations are a common cause of congenital stationary night blindness (CSNB),No variations were found in TRPM1.
G-protein-mediated inhibition of the Trp channel TRPM1 requires the Gβγ dimer.
Nawy et al., Wuhan, China. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2012
Results suggest a model in which the Gbetagamma dimer that is released as a result of the dissociation from Galpha(o) upon activation of mGluR6 closes the TRPM1 channel, perhaps via a direct interaction.
