Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), a potent vasodilator, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of migraine. Its release from adult rat trigeminal neurons in culture was shown to be markedly increased by the activation of adenylate cyclase with forskolin. Modulation of this secretion was investigated by a number of agents with known inhibitory effects(More)
Overuse knee joint injuries are the primary injuries to cyclists. Overuse injuries have been intuitively linked to the anatomic structure of the foot because external loads are applied to the foot in cycling. Thus, the structure and function of the foot should dictate in part how the loads are transmitted to the knee joint. Therefore, it was hypothesized(More)
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) released from trigeminal primary afferents has been implicated in the pathophysiology of migraine. Here, we have used an in vitro slice preparation to investigate its release from nerve terminals in the rat trigeminal nucleus caudalis. Extracellular-calcium dependent CGRP release was stimulated by both capsaicin and(More)
