TRP channels are a large family (about 28 genes) of plasma membrane, non-selective cationic channels that are either specifically or ubiquitously expressed in excitable and non-excitable cells.1 The TRP channels have putative six-transmembrane domains (TM) with a pore domain between the fifth and the six TM, and all assemble as tetramers. Both the N- and the C-terminus of all TRPs are intracellular.3 According to IUPHAR the TRP family comprises of three main subfamilies on the basis of sequence homology; TRPC (canonical), TRPV (vanilloid) and TRPM (melastatin). To date, three extra subfamilies are also considered to belong to the TRP family; the TRPA, TRPML, and the TRPP.1-4 The TRPM subfamily consists of eight members, TRPM1 to TRPM8, which also can be further subdivided into four subgroups based on their sequence homology: (1)TRPM1 and TRPM3 (2) TRPM6 and TRPM7 (3) TRPM4 and TRPM5 (4) TRPM2 and TRPM8.5 TRPM7 and TRPM6 are involved in Mg2+ homeostasis and are unique among the TRP family members, possessing a functional kinase domain at their C-terminus.6,7 Although the kinase is not necessary to the function of the channel it may have a role in modulating the activation of the channel.7 Recent work demonstrated that TRPM7 is a critical mediator of anoxic cell death.7,8 Abgent is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against an intracellular epitope of human TRPM7. The Anti-TRPM7 antibody (#AG1448) can be used in western blot analysis, immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical applications. It has been designed to recognize TRPM7 from human, rat and mouse samples.
