Extracellular ATP has been known to activate sensory neurons via the ATP-gated ion channels P2X receptors, leading to the proposal that the P2X receptors may play a role in signal transduction of pain from the peripheral site to the spinal cord in vivo. P2X3 receptors are expressed in capsaicin-sensitive small-sized dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, and… (More)
