Heterozygous mice mutant for the NMDA-type glutamate receptor (GluR) epsilon2 subunit with a highly homogeneous genetic background showed exaggerated responses to various acute noxious stimuli in the footshock, tail-flick, hot-plate and tail-pinch tests. Because the noxious stimuli in these behavioral tests were electrical, thermal and mechanical, the… CONTINUE READING
