IN THE HOURS TO WEEKS FOLLOWING TRAUMATIC SPINAL CORD INJURIES (SCI), BIOCHEMICAL PROCESSES ARE INITIATED THAT FURTHER DAMAGE THE TISSUE WITHIN AND SURROUNDING THE INITIAL INJURY SITE: a process termed secondary injury. Acrolein, a highly reactive unsaturated aldehyde, has been shown to play a major role in the secondary injury by contributing significantly(More)
Acrolein, an endogenous aldehyde, has been shown to be involved in sensory hypersensitivity after rat spinal cord injury (SCI), for which the pathogenesis is unclear. Acrolein can directly activate a pro-algesic transient receptor protein ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) channel that exists in sensory neurons. Both acrolein and TRPA1 mRNA are elevated post SCI, which(More)
