16,16-Dimethyl Prostaglandin E2
Synthetic derivative of prostaglandin E2 (Cat. No. 2296). Increases embryonic stem cell (ESC) hematopoietic colony formation in mouse bone marrow. Also induces an increase in hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) numbers and enhances Wnt activity within the HSC population in zebrafish embryos.

Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
