Acetaminophen (APAP) is an effective antipyretic and one of the most commonly used analgesic drugs. Unlike antipyretic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, APAP elicits hypothermia in addition to its antipyretic effect. Here we have examined the mechanisms responsible for the hypothermic activity

Neuron, 78(5), 869-880 (2013-06-15)
Animals undergo periods of behavioral quiescence and arousal in response to environmental, circadian, or developmental cues. During larval molts, C. elegans undergoes a period of profound behavioral quiescence termed lethargus. Locomotion quiescence during lethargus was abolished in mutants lacking a

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), a 37 aminoacid-residue peptide, is a marker of afferent fibers in the upper gastrointestinal tract, being almost completely depleted following treatment with the selective neurotoxin capsaicin that targets these fibers via transient receptor potential vanilloid type-1
Johannes Wohlrab et al.

Epicutaneous application of capsaicin causes a long-lasting analgesic effect by binding to the membrane transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) on mechanoheat-sensitive C and Aδ fibres, changing axonal integrity and inhibiting neurogenic inflammatory processes. To date, no information is available
David Acton et al.
Cell reports, 28(3), 625-639 (2019-07-18)
Acute itch can be generated by either chemical or mechanical stimuli, which activate separate pathways in the periphery and spinal cord. While substantial progress has been made in mapping the transmission pathway for chemical itch, the central pathway for mechanical

Anticancer drugs - oxaliplatin (OXPT) and paclitaxel (PACLI) cause painful peripheral neuropathy activating Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) channels. Here we investigated the influence of 3-[4-(3-trifluoromethyl-phenyl)-piperazin-1-yl]-dihydrofuran-2-one (LPP1) and pregabalin on nociceptive thresholds in neuropathic pain models elicited by these drugs. Pharmacokinetics
