Mol Neurobiol 56(11):7408-7419. doi: 10.1007/s12035-019-1616-0

Objective: To assess losartan’s analgesic effect on paclitaxel-induced neuropathic pain (PINP) in rats and its mechanism of action in dorsal root ganglion (DRG).

Summary: The mechanical thresholds, protein levels of inflammatory cytokines, and cellular location of AT1R and interleukin 1β (IL-1β) in the DRG were assessed with behavioral testing, Western blotting, and immunohistochemistry, respectively.

Usage: western blot (1:100)
