Expression of TRPV1 in cortical lesions from patients with tuberous sclerosis complex and focal cortical dysplasia type IIb.

Abstract

Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and focal cortical dysplasia type IIb (FCDIIb) are recognized as causes of intractable epilepsy. Transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor 1 (TRPV1), a member of the transient receptor potential family, is the capsaicin receptor and is known to be involved in peripheral nociception. Recent evidence suggested that TRPV1… (More)
