Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1 (TRPV1) plays a role in esophageal function. However, the distribution of TRPV1 nerve fibers in the esophagus is currently not well understood. In the present study, we investigated the distribution of TRPV1 and neurotransmitters released from TRPV1 nerve fibers in the mouse lower esophagus.(More)
Abnormalities of primary afferent nerve fibers are strongly associated with the visceral hypersensitivity state in inflammatory bowel disease. Hypersensitivity of afferent fibers occurs during inflammation. Therefore, to gain an insight into the alterations to receptors and channels expressed in primary afferent neurons, the current study aimed to(More)
