Histone deacetylase inhibitors prevent persistent hypersensitivity in an orofacial neuropathic pain model.

Mol Pain 2018 Jan-Dec;14:1744806918796763

2 Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA.

Chronic orofacial pain is a significant health problem requiring identification of regulating processes. Involvement of epigenetic modifications that is reported for hindlimb neuropathic pain experimental models, however, is less well studied in cranial nerve pain models. Three independent observations reported here are the (1) epigenetic profile in mouse trigeminal ganglia (TG) after trigeminal inflammatory compression (TIC) nerve injury mouse model determined by gene expression microarray, (2) H3K9 acetylation pattern in TG by immunohistochemistry, and (3) efficacy of histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors to attenuate development of hypersensitivity.

P2X4-receptor participates in EAAT3 regulation via BDNF-TrkB signaling in a model of trigeminal allodynia.

Mol Pain 2018 Jan-Dec;14:1744806918795930

1 Department of Neurology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, People's Republic of China.

Objective Previous studies of neuropathic pain have suggested that the P2X4 purinoceptor (P2X4R) in spinal microglia is essential for maintaining allodynia following nerve injury. However, little is known about its role in inflammatory soup-induced trigeminal allodynia, which closely mimics chronic migraine status. Here, we determined the contributions of P2X4R and related signaling pathways in an inflammatory soup-induced trigeminal allodynia model. Read More
