Literature associating TRPC6 and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis 2
Transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily C, member 6; Thought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Probably is operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) in a membrane-delimited fashion, independently of protein kinase C. Seems not to be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion; Belongs to the transient receptor (TC 1.A.4) family. STrpC subfamily. TRPC6 sub-subfamily.
Synonyms: TRPC6, TRPC6p, hTRPC6, B3KNL3, E9PJN4 ...
