None.

Description

TRIC (trimeric intracellular cation) channels are differentially expressed in intracellular stores in animal cell types. TRIC subtypes contain three proposed transmembrane segments, and form homo-trimers with a bullet-like structure. Electrophysiological measurements with purified TRIC preparations identify a monovalent cation-selective channel [PMID: 17611541].
