Cover Article: Carrageenan evoked P-Akt in deep dorsal horn neurons is prevented by loss of neurokinin1 positive neurons in superficial dorsal horn

Contributed by L.S. Sorkin, J.-I. Choi, and F.J. Koehrn, Univ. California San Diego, La Jolla, CA Paw inflammation with carrageenan elicits phosphorylation of Akt in spinal cord neurons with an unusual time course (Choi et al., 2010). Activation of Akt is seen first in neurons of the superficial dorsal horn and in α-motor neurons, followed …
