General structural themes of TRP proteins
A, hydropathy plots for TRPC1 (accession P48995) and TRPP2 (accession XP-011124) compared with Shaker voltage-gated K+ channel (accession P08510). A theme of six membrane-spanning segments (S1-S6) and an ion selectivity filter (P-loop) is evident in each case. TRPC1 and other TRPCs have an extra hydrophobic segment towards the N-terminus. The general S1–S6 arrangement of TRPC1 has been supported by biochemical data (Dohke et al. 2004). All sequences have been clipped at the N (left) and C (right) termini. Hydropathy (Kyte-Doolittle) plots were created using Lasergene software (DNAStar Inc.). B, diagrams of the putative membrane-spanning arrangement of TRP proteins. The upper diagram is a plan view and suggests a tetrameric arrangement with ions flowing through a central pore – as for the Shaker K+ channel. The lower diagram is a classical depiction of a S1–S6 protein. Extracellular targeting of antibody (Ab; not to scale) is shown for inhibition of TRPC1 function (Xu & Beech, 2001a; Beech et al. 2003; Bergdahl et al. 2003).

On page 740, under the heading Molecular biology in the Methods section, adenine was incorrectly referred to as alanine. The final two sentences of the section should have read:

Sequencing revealed adenine at position 1363. Direct sequencing from 6A1 confirmed the result.
