Aquaporin 1 (AQP1) is the archetypal member of a family of water channel proteins that contribute to water homeostasis in kidney, lung, and other tissues. Although there is limited evidence that aquaporins are expressed in the nervous system, AQP4 is expressed in glia and AQP9 is present on some neuronal and glial mitochondria. In the present study, we used(More)
In a previous report, we compared the properties of lamina V neurons of the spinal cord dorsal horn in wild-type mice and in mice with a deletion of the preprotachykinin-A (PPT-A) gene, which encodes substance P (SP) and neurokinin A (NKA). The mutant mice had pronounced deficits in the response to thermal stimulation, both before and after mustard oil(More)
New generations of cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors are more potent and efficacious than their traditional parent compounds. They are also safer than the classic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and are starting to be used not only for low to moderate intensity pain, but also for high intensity pain. Three different strategies have been(More)
1. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs although they also induce unwanted side effects due to the inhibition of the physiological effects regulated by prostaglandins. This has led to the search for new compounds with fewer side effects, such as the nitro-NSAIDs (NO-NSAIDs). Paracetamol is an(More)
