TRPL channel in the membrane of a gustatory receptor neuro

Shown is the TRPL channel in the membrane of a gustatory receptor neuron, which has been activated by camphor (ball and stick model). The dendrites of three stylized bipolar gustatory neurons are touching camphor above the membrane. The green loops in the blue cytoplasm represent the TRPL channel.
