Cough is a common symptom in several respiratory diseases and may occur in healthy subjects as a defense mechanism against noxious inhalants. Cough response is mediated by transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 (TRPV1) expressed by C-fibers in the airways. Capsaicin (CPS) activates TRPV1 and is regularly used as a tool to study cough response. Although single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of TRPV1 are implicated in CPS binding, their role in cough response is not fully elucidated.

Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 4 Regulation of Adenosine Triphosphate Release by the Adenosine Triphosphate Transporter Vesicular Nucleotide Transporter, a Novel Therapeutic Target for Gastrointestinal Baroreception and Chronic Inflammation.
Transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4) is activated by stretch (mechanical), warm temperature, some epoxyeicosatrienoic acids, and lipopolysaccharide. TRPV4 is expressed throughout the gastr...
Sensitization of transient receptor potential (TRP) cation channels probably contributes to intestinal hypersensitivity, a hallmark of gastrointestinal disorders. Histamine acting via histamine 1 rece...
Transient receptor potential vanilloid (TRPV) 4 belongs to the TRPV subfamily of TRP ion channels. TRPV4 channels play a critical role in chondrocytes and thus TRPV4 is an attractive target of disease...
Lenses have an intracellular hydrostatic pressure gradient to drive fluid from central fiber cells to surface epithelial cells. Pressure is regulated by a feedback control system that relies on transi...
Heroin use disorder (HUD) is a complex brain disease that includes multiple phenotypes. Heroin acts primarily as a mu-opioid receptor () agonist. The κ opioid receptor 1 () is critically involved in ...
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a key role in the innate immune system. Toll-like receptor-4 (TLR4) in particular, appears to play a role in susceptibility to cancer. Of 44 identified SNPs...

Methods used to determine individuals' specific ALLELES or SNPS (single nucleotide polymorphisms).
The regular and simultaneous occurrence in a single interbreeding population of two or more discontinuous genotypes. The concept includes differences in genotypes ranging in size from a single nucleotide site (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE) to large nucleotide sequences visible at a chromosomal level.
A single nucleotide variation in a genetic sequence that occurs at appreciable frequency in the population.
A broad group of eukaryotic six-transmembrane cation channels that are classified by sequence homology because their functional involvement with SENSATION is varied. They have only weak voltage sensitivity and ion selectivity. They are named after a DROSOPHILA mutant that displayed transient receptor potentials in response to light. A 25-amino-acid motif containing a TRP box (EWKFAR) just C-terminal to S6 is found in TRPC, TRPV and TRPM subgroups. ANKYRIN repeats are found in TRPC, TRPV & TRPN subgroups. Some are functionally associated with TYROSINE KINASE or TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES.
A cyclic nucleotide formed from CYTIDINE TRIPHOSPHATE by the action of cytidylate cyclase. It is a potential cyclic nucleotide intracellular mediator of signal transductions.
