Synaptic plasticity and pain: role of ionotropic glutamate receptors.

Larsson M, Broman J (2011) Synaptic plasticity and pain: role of ionotropic glutamate receptors. Neuroscientist 17(3):256-73. doi: 10.1177/1073858409349913

Summary: This review discusses the role of glutaminergic sensory synapses in pain hypersensitivity caused by tissue or nerve injury. The focus is on the roles of ionotrophic glutamate receptors, and how they are involved in dorsal horn synaptic plasticity. The role of substance P in such mechanisms is briefly discussed, as elucidated by the use of SP-SAP (Cat. #IT-07).
