Specific [3H]resiniferatoxin (RTX) binding detects the vanilloid receptor type I (VR1). In the present study we demonstrate specific, high-affinity, saturable [3H]RTX binding in various areas of monkey brain not known to be innervated by primary afferent neurons as well as in spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion neurons of the same origin.

Recently, with use of rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons we have been able to dissociate the binding affinities of vanilloids from their potencies to induce 45Ca uptake, which suggests the existence of distinct classes of the vanilloid receptor (). In the present study, we have demonstrated that the ultrapotent capsaicin analog resiniferatoxin (RTX)(More)
C-fiber sensory afferent neurons, which contain neuropeptides such as calcitonin-gene related peptide and substance P, mediate a wide variety of physiologic responses, including chemogenic pain, thermoregulation, and neurogenic inflammation. Capsaicin, the pungent constituent in red pepper, functions to activate and then, at higher doses and longer times,(More)
The study has analysed the action of histamine in the rabbit venous system and evaluated its potential role in contraction during increased venous pressure. We have found that a great variety exists in histamine sensitivity and H(1) -histamine receptor expression in various types of rabbit veins. Veins of the extremities (saphenous vein, femoral vein,(More)
