Selective TRPA1 channel blocker (IC50 values are 67 and 289 nM at human and rat TRPA1 receptors respectively). Displays 1000-fold selectivity for TRPA1 over other TRP channels, and is >150-fold selective over 75 other ion channels, enzymes and G-protein-coupled receptors. Exhibits analgesic effects in a rat osteoarthritic pain model.

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.
