Oxytocin alleviates orofacial mechanical hypersensitivity associated with infraorbital nerve injury through vasopressin-1A receptors of the rat trigeminal ganglia
Abstract Oxytocin (OXT) is a neuropeptide hormone synthesized and secreted by hypothalamic neurons and has been reported to play a significant role in pain modulation. However, the mechanismsExpand
Interaction between calcitonin gene‐related peptide‐immunoreactive neurons and satellite cells via P2Y12R in the trigeminal ganglion is involved in neuropathic tongue pain in rats
The P2Y12 receptor expressed in satellite cells of the trigeminal ganglion is thought to contribute to neuropathic pain. The functional interaction between neurons and satellite cells via P2Y12Expand
CXCR4 signaling in macrophages contributes to periodontal mechanical hypersensitivity in Porphyromonas gingivalis-induced periodontitis in mice
Background Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease accompanied by alveolar bone loss and progressive inflammation without pain. However, the potential contributors eliminating pain associated withExpand
Medullary neural circuit regeneration after trigeminal nerve transection.
The inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) comprises several types of sensory fibers. To clarify whether each type of primary afferent is regenerated comparably after injury, we developed a model of completeExpand
