It has been recently reported that the essential antioxidant element selenium has protective effects on cytosolic Ca(2+) levels in cell lines. However, the effects of selenium on like transient receptor potential melastatin 2 (TRPM2) in response to oxidative stress (H(2) O(2) ) are not well understood. We investigated the effects of selenium on H(2) O(2) -induced TRPM2 channel currents in the Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell line using patch-clamp and fura-2 fluorescence imaging techniques.
