Trpc4-associated protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TRPC4AP gene.
Model organisms [ edit ]
Model organisms have been used in the study of TRPC4AP function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Trpc4ap tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi [6 ] was generated as part of the [7 ] International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists. [8 ] [9 ] [10 ]
Male and female animals underwent a standardized
phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion. [4 ] Twenty five tests were carried out on [11 ] mutant mice and three significant abnormalities were observed. Few [4 ] homozygous mutant embryos were identified during gestation, and thus fewer than expected survived until weaning. The remaining tests were carried out on heterozygous mutant adult mice; females had an abnormal anagen phase of the hair cycle. [4 ]
Interactions [ edit ]
TRPC4AP has been shown to
interact with TNFRSF1A. [12 ]
