A very potent K2p channel blocker which was used to figure out the blocking activity as concentration of the blocker molecule increased. Spadin is a great antagonist molecule which shows channel blocking properties which is concentration dependent.

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.
