According to a recent study, vesicular glutamate transporter-3 (VGLUT3) contributes to injury-induced mechanical hyperalgesia in mice. The aims of the study were to investigate whether VGLUT3 is involved in visceral pain, and whether transient intestinal infection or acute cold restraint stress (ACRS) affects VGLUT3 expression levels in rats. Changes in(More)
Mast cells (MCs) deficient rats (Ws/Ws) were used to investigate the roles of MCs in visceral hyperalgesia. Ws/Ws and wild control (+/+) rats were exposed to T. spiralis or submitted to acute cold restraint stress (ACRS). Levels of proteinase-activated receptor 2 (PAR2) and nerve growth factor (NGF) were determined by immunoblots and RT-PCR analysis, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore whether bone marrow transplantation (BMT) can restore gastrointestinal mast cells in mast cell deficient (Ws/Ws) rats and understand the features of these reconstituted mast cells. METHODS Thirty-six Ws/Ws rats were subjected to Co(60) radiation at 6 gradient doses (6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0 Gy, n = 6) to confirm the(More)
