The widely distributed TRPV4 cationic channel participates in the transduction of both physical (osmotic, mechanical, and heat) and chemical (endogenous, plant-derived, and synthetic ligands) stimuli. In this chapter we will review TRPV4 expression, biophysics, structure, regulation, and interacting partners as well as physiological and pathological insights obtained in TRPV4 animal models and human genetic studies.
