Family

TRP-like family (IPR010308)

Short name: TRP-like_family

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents a family of transient receptor potential channel-like proteins. The family includes several fungal flavin carrier proteins, which may be responsible for the transport of FAD into the endoplasmatic reticulum lumen, where it is required for oxidative protein folding [PMID: 16717099]. The family also includes the TRP-like ion channel pkd2, which acts as a key signaling component in the regulation of cell shape and cell wall synthesis through interaction with GTPase Rho1 [PMID: 15537393].
