Channel protein converts vibrations to electrical signal
... "At the moment there are no known deafnesses that map
to the same chromosomal location as this channel," he said, "but we are screening some unmapped deafness families." In addition to the evidence that TRPA1 forms a mechanically-gated channel in the hair cells, the structure of the protein suggests th...
