Injury to the peripheral nervous system can lead to spontaneous pain, hyperalgesia and allodynia. Previous studies have shown sprouting of Abeta-fibres into lamina II of the spinal cord dorsal horn after nerve injury and the formation of new synapses by these sprouts. Synaptophysin is a presynaptic vesicle protein, useful in the identification of synaptogenesis. Here we investigated whether synaptogenesis as measured by the expression of synaptophysin protein correlates with symptoms of… CONTINUE READING
