Abstract
TRP ion channels are ubiquitously present in the mammalian body and take part in numerous key physiological functions, including temperature sensing, taste perception, osmo-regulation, cardiac function, renal function, development, and glucose homeostasis. The mechanisms whereby TRP channels are transported to the plasma membrane, where most of them exert their physiological actions, remains a poorly understood aspect of TRP channel biology.
