Transient receptor potential (TRP) channels play essential roles in sensory physiology and their expression in different classes of sensory neurons reflect distinct receptive properties of these neurons. While expression of the TRPV, TRPA, and to a certain degree TRPM classes of channels has been studied in sensory neurons, little is known about the(More)
1. Activation of GABA(B) receptors evokes hypothermia in wildtype (GABA(B(1))+/+) but not in GABA(B) receptor knockout (GABA(B(1))-/-) mice. The aim of the present study was to determine the hypothermic and behavioural effects of the putative GABA(B) receptor agonist gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), and of the GABA(A) receptor agonist muscimol. In addition,(More)
The actions of the anticonvulsant gabapentin [1-(aminomethyl)cyclohexaneacetic acid, Neurontin] have been somewhat enigmatic until recently, when it was claimed to be a gamma-aminobutyric acid-B (GABA(B)) receptor agonist acting exclusively at a heterodimeric complex containing the GABA(B(1a)) splice variant (Mol Pharmacol 2001;59:144-152). In this study,(More)
