Trpm4 transports Na+ from the extracellular region to the cytosol

Trpm4, a tetramer (Guo et al. 2017), is activated by calcium ions and passively transports monovalent cations across the plasma membrane resulting in depolarization of the cell (Demion et al. 2007, Dutta Banik et al. 2018). In mice, Trpm4 and Trpm5 are involved in sodium signals in type II taste cells and are required for perception of sweet, bitter, and umami tastes (Dutta Banik et al. 2018). Trpm4 is approximately 28-fold less sensitive to calcium than Trpm5 is (Ullrich et al. 2005).
