FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene product belongs to a family of nonselective cation channels that function in a variety of processes, including temperature sensation and vasoregulation. The thermosensitive members of this family are expressed in subsets of sensory neurons that terminate in the skin, and are activated at distinct physiological temperatures. This channel is activated at temperatures between 22 and 40 degrees C. This gene lies in close proximity to another family member gene on chromosome 17, and the two encoded proteins are thought to associate with each other to form heteromeric channels. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice have strong deficits in response to innocuous and noxious heat but not in other sensory modalities. [provided by MGI curators]
