Dorsal root ganglia (DRG) which contain glial cells and somas of primary sensory neurons are pivotal for neural transmission between the peripheral and central nervous systems. It is well established that neuropeptides such as substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide located in DRG neurons control sensory and pain mechanisms. However, contrary to the brain and spinal cord which are extensively investigated, DRG received little attention. Therefore, the current knowledge on DRG may be far… CONTINUE READING
