The Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) channel family comprises a novel group of non-selective cation channels that are distinct from classical sodium, calcium or potassium voltage-gated channels and provide the potential to develop selective and safer ion channel drugs.
In guinea-pig ileum the contraction elicited by high potassium is due to influx of extracellular calcium into the muscle cell via voltage-dependent calcium channels (Bolton, 1979), and was completely inhibited by diltiazem, whereas ACh-induced responses may instead involve activation of non-selective cation channels (Chen et al.
