Abstract
Much work has focused on the electrophysiological properties of transient receptor potential channels. Recently, a novel aspect of importance emerged: the interplay of transient receptor potential channels with the cytoskeleton. Recent data suggest a direct interaction and functional repercussion for both binding partners. The bi-directionality of physical and functional interaction renders therefore, the cytoskeleton a potent integration point of complex biological signalling events, from both the cytoplasm and the extracellular space. In this minireview, we focus mostly on the interaction of the cytoskeleton with transient receptor potential vanilloid channels. Thereby, we point out the functional importance of cytoskeleton components both as modulator and as modulated downstream effector. The resulting implications for patho-biological situations are discussed.
