The involvement of TRPA1 channel activation in the inflammatory response evoked by topical application of cinnamaldehyde to mice.

Abstract

AIMS In the present work, we characterize the inflammatory process induced by the topical application of cinnamaldehyde on the skin of mice and verify the participation of transient receptor potential A1 TRPA1 receptors in this process. MAIN METHODS We measured mouse ear edema and sensitization/desensitization after topical application of cinnamaldehyde… (More)
