Researchers Discover Key to Body’s Ability to Detect Subtle Temperature Change
...rmal cells, it suggests a likely mechanism for the thermosensitivity
seen in all animal cells, Zheng explained. “We found that, by reassembling subunits we potentially have a lot more than six channel types responsible for the sensing of temperature,” he said. The current findings are featured on the cover of the...
Menthol Receptor-A Thermosensitivity Determinant in Cold Temperature
....TRPM8 is the primary, if not sole, determinant of thermosensitivity
in the cool range, the researchers noted. It also contributes to the detection of extreme cold, or temperatures below 15 C degrees. Cold, heat, sound, light, taste, and smell are detected and converted into neural impulses through the activation of...
