The activation of glial cells in the spinal dorsal horn and the gracile nucleus by inflammation and nerve injury has been suggested to be involved in neuronal plasticity and central sensitization, hence contributing to tactile allodynia. The aim of this study was to determine the possible intracellular signal transduction pathway associated with glial cells, which have been activated by partial sciatic nerve ligation (PSNL), a well-characterized rat model of neuropathic pain.
