ROS-induced TRPM2 channel activation most probably occurs indirectly via formation of adenosine diphosphate ribose (ADPR) which activates the channel by binding to a special domain located at the C-terminus of the channel [16].
In addition, mRNA data of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissue cancer cell lines of the Novartis and Broad Institute Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia were queried for TRPM2 and Bcl-2 mRNA abundance.
Shortly before transfection, TRPM2 or nontargeting siRNA was added at a concentration of 1 [micro]M.
