Targeting the Primary Cilium

Targeting the primary cilium The primary cilium is an incredibly fine process that protrudes from the apical surface of cells.  Most cells have a primary cilium, though it temporarily vanishes during mitosis.  For many years the primary cilia were largely neglected,...

PIP2 biosensor used in new research on the regulation of cold sensitivity in DRG neurons.

In a bioRxiv preprint titled, “Gαq sensitizes TRPM8 to inhibition by PI(4,5)P2 depletion upon receptor activation”, graduate student Luyu Liu of Tibor Rohacs’ lab ( at Rutgers Medical School and her colleagues explore how PIP2 levels, Ca2+, and the G-protein Gαq, converge to regulate activity of the cationic TRPM8 channel, which is normally activated by cold temperatures and chemical agonists such as menthol.
