Transduction Channels in Sensory Cells
edited by
Stephan Frings
and Jonathan Bradley

Transduction Channels in Sensory Cells is the first book to provide a molecular level explanation of how the senses work, linking molecular biology with sensory physiology to deduce the molecular mechanism of a key step in sensory signal generation.

Transduction Channels in Sensory Cells systematically covers phototransduction, chemosensory transduction, mechanotransduction, temperature and pain perception, as well as specialized receptors for electrical and magnetic signals.

Required reading for biologists, physiologists and medical researchers with an interest in sensory physiology.

Contents:

  1. The molecular basis of touch sensation as modeled in Caenorhabditis elegans
  2. Transduction channels in hair cells
  3. Acid-sensing ion channels
  4. Chemosensory transduction in Caenorhabditis elegans
  5. Vertebrate olfactory signal transduction and the interplay of excitatory anionic and cationic currents
  6. Transduction channels in the vomeronasal organ
  7. Transduction mechanisms in taste cells
  8. Invertebrate phototransduction : multimolecular signaling complexes and the role of TRP and TRPL channels
  9. The transduction channels of rod and cone photoreceptors
  10. Ion channels and thermotransduction
  11. Pain transduction : gating and modulation of ion channels
  12. Transduction and transmission in electroreceptor organs
