Functional changes of thermosensory molecules related to environmental adaptation

Scientists have clarified the functional shift of thermal sensors among frog species adapted to different thermal niches and revealed the molecular basis for the shift in thermal perception related to environmental adaptation. They have found that thermal properties of heat sensors, TRPV1 and TRPA1, changed during adaptation processes to different thermal niches among clawed frog species.
