Biological Activity for BAM (8-22)
BAM (8-22) is an endogenous peptide fragment that is a potent agonist for MRGPRX1 (EC50 values are 8 - 150 nM); first isolated from bovine adrenal medulla. Unlike BAM 22P (Cat. No. 1650), does not contain the met-enkephalin motif therefore displays no affinity for opioid receptors.

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.
