The involvement of P2X purinoreceptors (P2X receptors) in somatosensory transmission is herein reviewed with a focus on those receptors that are expressed on sensory neurons to elucidate their roles in the initiation of sensory excitation from primary afferent neurons, in modulating synaptic transmission at the first sensory synapses formed between primary… CONTINUE READING
