  • Upregulation of CCR2 chemokine receptor expression by dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons is an important process in the development and maintenance of neuropathic pain. CCR2 is not expressed by DRG neurons under normal conditions but is upregulated in several animal models of neuropathic pain where its signaling is excitatory. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal upregulation of CCR2 have not been investigated. We examined the promoter region of the CCR2 gene and found that a… CONTINUE READING
