X-linked dominant Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMTX) neuropathy has been mapped to the Xq13 region. Subsequently, several mutations that could account for CMTX have been detected in the coding part of the connexin32 (Cx32) gene, which is located within this region. In order to develop more specific diagnostic tools, we have begun a systematic screening of families(More)
High prevalence of chronic orofacial pain in women and its relationship with ovarian states suggest that ovarian hormones may be involved in the control of orofacial nociception. Since the interaction between ovarian hormones and nociception seems more evident in the orofacial area than in many other parts of the body, a possible site specificity of an(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of glycine in sensory processes in the spinal trigeminal nucleus oralis (Sp5O). We evaluated the effect of intravenous administration of strychnine, a glycine receptor antagonist, on the responses of Sp5O convergent neurons evoked by innocuous peripheral electrical and mechanical stimuli in(More)
