Potent and selective antagonist for the human type I interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor (IC50 values are 8 nM, > 6.7 mM and > 200 mM for human type I, human type II and murine type I IL-1 receptors respectively). Blocks IL-1-induced expression of ICAM-1 and E-selectin in HUVECs and IL-1β induction of IL-8 in human dermal fibroblasts. Reduces IL-1β-induced IL-6 production and exhibits anti-inflammatory activity in vivo.
(Modifications: Phe-1 = N-terminal Ac, X - Aze, Leu-15 = C-terminal amide)

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.
