Reversible TRPA1 channel blocker (IC50 values are 3.1 and 4.5 μM at human and mouse TRPA1 respectively). Blocks cinnameldehyde-induced but not capsaicin-induced nociception and reverses mechanical hyperalgesia in vivo. Also blocks TRPA1 pore dilation (IC50 = 10.3 μM for the inhibition of Yo-Pro uptake).

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.
