- Expression of TRPM7 in rat pituitary glandImmunohistochemical staining of rat hypophysis paraffin embedded transversal sections using Anti-TRPM7 Antibody (#ACC-047), (1:50). TRPM7 is stained in both the posterior part or neurohypophysis (N) and the anterior part or adenohypophysis (A). Note that stain is highly specific for andocrine cells in the adenohypophysis. Color reaction was obtained with SuperPicture HRP-conjugated polymer (Zymed) followed by DAB. Hematoxilin is used as the Counterstain.

TRP channels are a large family (about 28 genes) of plasma membrane, non-selective cationic channels that are either specifically or ubiquitously expressed in excitable and non-excitable cells.1 The TRP channels have putative six-transmembrane domains (TM) with a pore domain between the fifth and the six TM, and all assemble as tetramers. Both the N- and the C-terminus of all TRPs are intracellular.3
According to IUPHAR the TRP family comprises of three main subfamilies on the basis of sequence homology; TRPC (canonical), TRPV (vanilloid) and TRPM (melastatin). To date, three extra subfamilies are also considered to belong to the TRP family; the TRPA, TRPML, and the TRPP.1-4
The TRPM subfamily consists of eight members, TRPM1 to TRPM8, which also can be further subdivided into four subgroups based on their sequence homology: (1)TRPM1 and TRPM3 (2) TRPM6 and TRPM7 (3) TRPM4 and TRPM5 (4) TRPM2 and TRPM8.5
TRPM7 and TRPM6 are involved in Mg2+ homeostasis and are unique among the TRP family members, possessing a functional kinase domain at their C-terminus.6,7 Although the kinase is not necessary to the function of the channel it may have a role in modulating the activation of channel 7.Recent work demonstrated that TRPM7 is a critical mediator of anoxic cell death.7,8
