Notably, coexpression of wild-type TRPA1 with the double mutant of Cys633 and Cys856 nearly abolished hyperoxia-induced but enhanced 2-APB-induced responses, raising the possibility that the hyperoxia response of TRPA1 channels requires all four subunit proteins of tetrameric channel complexes2), (96) to carry oxidizable Cys633 and/or Cys856.
