Transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4) channel is a member of transient receptor potential superfamily. TRPV4 is selectively permeable to calcium. Activation of the TRPV4 channel induces an increase in intracellular calcium concentration and plays an important role under physiological and pathological conditions. Especially, there is evidence showing that TRPV4 is involved in cerebral ischemic reperfusion injury. The present paper reviewed some research progress about the role of TRPV4 in cerebral ischemic reperfusion injury.
