Recent reports have linked the adenine nucleotide 2nd messenger gated Ca (2+) channel TRPM2 with hydrogen peroxide-induced pancreatic β-cell death in mouse and rat systems. As β-cells are exposed in vivo to reactive oxygen species produced via the respiratory chain and NADPH oxidases (reviewed in (3, 4) ), these reports suggest the existence of a TRPM2-dependent signaling pathway involved in β-cell responses to redox stress.
