Quantification of acetylcholine in tissue by LC-MS/MS.
By Olga Malysheva on 01/04/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse

We used it as an analytical standard for quantification of acetylcholine in brain tissue.

Even 10mM solution does degrades in the -80C freezer. We keep our stock as 100mM and make new every 6 months.

Pain Poster

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.
