Menthol Receptor-A Thermosensitivity Determinant in Cold Temperature
According to a study in Nature by Yale School of Medicine, the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), and the University of Wisconsin, the menthol receptor detects a wide range of cold temperatures and relays the information to the brain.
The finding solves the mystery of how impo...

... laboratory cell cultures to form new functioning channels. Assuming this process also happens in normal 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 respo...
