We utilized this product at 1uM to inhibit endothelin-A receptors ex vivo in mouse aortas followed by conducting vasomotor function experiments. We utilized this ET-A inhibitor in combination with Tocris' BQ788 (endothelin-B receptor antagonist) which works equally as well. We have obtained high quality data using this BQ123 product!

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.
