Subtypes Y1 and Y2 of the neuropeptide Y receptor are respectively expressed in pro-opiomelanocortin- and neuropeptide-Y-containing neurons of the rat hypothalamic arcuate nucleus.
The arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus houses a number of neurochemically different cell populations. Among these, a dense cluster of small neuropeptide-Y (NPY)-expressing neurons is located in itsExpand

Expression of vesicular glutamate transporters, VGLUT1 and VGLUT2, in cholinergic spinal motoneurons
Mammalian spinal motoneurons are cholinergic neurons that have long been suspected to use also glutamate as a neurotransmitter. We report that VGLUT1 and VGLUT2, two subtypes of vesicular glutamateExpand

Effect of Axotomy on Expression of NPY, Galanin, and NPY Y1 and Y2 Receptors in Dorsal Root Ganglia and the Superior Cervical Ganglion Studied with Double-Labeling in Situ Hybridization and
Using double-labeling techniques for both in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry some peptides and peptide receptors were studied quantitatively in a sensory and a sympathetic ganglion afterExpand

TAFA4, a chemokine-like protein, modulates injury-induced mechanical and chemical pain hypersensitivity in mice.
C-low-threshold mechanoreceptors (C-LTMRs) are unique among C-unmyelinated primary sensory neurons. These neurons convey two opposite aspects of touch sensation: a sensation of pleasantness, and aExpand

Neuropeptide tyrosine and pain.
Research during the past two decades supports a complex role for neuropeptide tyrosine (NPY) and two of its associated receptors, the Y1 receptor and the Y2 receptor, in the modulation of pain, inExpand

miR-92a regulates expression of synaptic GluA1-containing AMPA receptors during homeostatic scaling
We investigated whether microRNAs could regulate AMPA receptor expression during activity blockade. miR-92a strongly repressed the translation of GluA1 receptors by binding the 3′ untranslated regionExpand

Expression and regulation of the neuropeptide Y Y2 receptor in sensory and autonomic ganglia.
The Y2 subtype of neuropeptide tyrosine (NPY) receptors (Y2R) and some neuropeptides have been studied with in situ hybridization in sensory and autonomic neurons of rat and monkey. Between 10% andExpand

Regulation of Expression of Galanin and Galanin Receptors in Dorsal Root Ganglia and Spinal Cord after Axotomy and Inflammation a
Abstract: Galanin can normally be detected only in a few dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, but it is dramatically upregulated after peripheral nerve injury in both rat and monkey. Galanin is storedExpand

Bidirectional integrative regulation of Cav1.2 calcium channel by microRNA miR‐103: role in pain
Chronic pain states are characterized by long‐term sensitization of spinal cord neurons that relay nociceptive information to the brain. Among the mechanisms involved, up‐regulation ofExpand

Galaninergic mechanisms at the spinal level: Focus on histochemical phenotyping
The 29/30 amino acid neuropeptide galanin is present in a small population of DRG neurons under normal condition but is strongly upregulated after nerve injury. There is evidence that thisExpand
