Oxidative stress-induced Ca2+ permeable transient receptor potential melastatin 2 (TRPM2) channels are expressed at high levels in the brain, appear to link neuronal excitability to cellular metabolism, and are involved in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders. We aimed to study the electrophysiological properties of TRPM2 channels in stellate cells of the mouse ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN) using molecular, immunohistochemical and electrophysiological approaches.
