TRPA1 activation by electrophiles occurs though covalent modification of specific cysteine residues in the N-terminal cytoplasmic domain.; Hydroxylation is required for TRPA1 activity inhibition in normoxia. In hypoxia, the decrease in oxygene concentration diminishes the activity of the hydroxylase EGLN1, thus relieving TRPA1 from inhibition and ultimately leading to channel activation.; Oxidation of Cys-633 and Cys-856 in hyperoxia may override the hydroxylase EGLN1-mediated inhibition, causing TRPA1 activation.
Receptor-activated non-selective cation channel involved in detection of pain and possibly also in cold perception and inner ear function. Has a central role in the pain response to endogenous inflammatory mediators and to a diverse array of volatile irritants, such as mustard oil, cinnamaldehyde, garlic and acrolein, an irritant from tears gas and vehicule exhaust fumes. Is also activated by menthol (in vitro). Acts also as a ionotropic cannabinoid receptor by being activated by delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of marijuana. May be a component for the mechanosensitive transduction channel of hair cells in inner ear, thereby participating in the perception of sounds. Probably operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system.
