TRPV1 & P2X3-Daily Double

Low pH and Chronic Muscle Pain

Our Pain and Inflammation Antibodies are routinely used for chronic pain. I would like to highlight a recent publication referencing use of our  Guinea Pig TRPV1 and Pig 2X3 Antibodies and Blocking Peptides:

Low pH leads to changes in several electrical properties of MSA, including initiation of ectopic action potentials which could propagate centrally but could also invade the peripheral endings causing glutamate release and activation of nearby nociceptors within the spindle capsule. This peripheral drive could contribute both to the transition to, and maintenance of, persistent muscle pain as seen in some “functional” pain syndromes.
