Biological Activity

Nicotinic receptor (nAChR) blocker at autonomic ganglia; prevents nicotine-mediated inhibition of apoptosis. Induces changes in neuronal activity similar to the influences of glutamate in vitro. Inhibits nicotine-mediated induction of XIAP and survivin.

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.
