Nerve growth factor and norepinephrine regulate galanin expression in primary cultures of dorsal root ganglion neurons

Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a major regulator of inflammatory and homeostatic pain states, influencing both sensory neuron phenotype and physiologic responses (Petruska & Mendell, 2004). It is known that NGF is one of the well characterized regulators of galanin expression (Thippeswamy et al., 2007). NGF regulates galanin expression occurring in dorsal… (More)
