Several lines of evidence indicate that Group I metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) 1alpha receptors are involved in the processing of nociceptive information in the spinal cord. The goals of the present study are to document the role of mGlu1alpha receptors in peripheral nociception. To accomplish this we investigate the presence of mGlu1alpha receptors on peripheral primary afferent fibers and determine the behavioral effects of (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (S-DHPG), which is an mGlu1/5 receptor… CONTINUE READING
