Co-localization of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors and substance P (neurokinin-1) receptors in rat spinal cord.

Abstract

Glutamate, substance P (SP), and their receptors have been implicated in the initiation and maintenance of persistent pain through an interaction at second order spinal cord neurons. Employing well-characterized antibodies to the SP receptor and the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NR1 subunit, splice variant missing exon 22), we demonstrate co-localization… (More)
