Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are known to stimulate mitogenesis in a variety of non-neuronal cell types and to support the survival in vitro of many neuronal cell types. The physiological role of FGFs in the CNS is currently not known. The present study determined the distribution in the rat CNS of a prominent member of the FGF family, basic FGF (bFGF).(More)
It is strongly suggested that estrogen plays a key role in pain modulation. Estrogen's effects are mediated mainly by two receptors, ERα and ERβ. However, the specific role of these receptors is still not clear. In this study, the involvement of both receptors on nociceptive responses was measured in ERα and ERβ knockout (KO) C57BL/6j mice and their(More)
