Vetter I (2018) Toxins in Neurobiology: New tools from old molecules. Neurosci Lett 679:1-3. doi: 10.1016/j.neulet.2018.05.008
Summary: The selective ablation of neurokinin-1 receptor-expressing neurons by SP-SAP revealed a key role for the preBötzinger complex in the generation of respiratory rhythm. Toxin-mediated neuronal ablation may also find therapeutic applications, such as the treatment of severe refractory pain in terminally ill patients by intrathecal SP-SAP which causes selective loss of neurokinin-1 receptor-expressing neurons in the spinal cord dorsal horn.
