Spinal c-fos expression is differentially induced by brief or persistent noxious stimulation






Neuroreport 5(15): 1853-1856

Spinal c-fos expression is differentially induced by brief or persistent noxious stimulation

The influence of stimulus duration on spinal induction of the c-fos proto-oncogene was analysed in the rat by pinching or heating the skin for periods varying from 20 s to 2 h. At stimulation periods shorter than 20 min, c-fos activation occurred in laminae I-Ili following mechanical stimulation and I-IIo following thermal stimulation. Mechanical stimulation produced delayed activation in laminae III-IV, V and VII at 30 min, 60 min and 2 h, respectively, and thermal stimulation in lamina Ili at 50 min. It is suggested that late c-fos activation signals inflammatory pain and is due to sensitization of primary afferent neurones.

The effects of severe contusive spinal cord injury (SCI), at thoracic level 8 J8), on lumbar c-Fos expression in the spinal cord was investigated. As hypothesized, chronic SCI has a significant effect on expression of c-Fos in the dorsal spinal s...

The present study aims to test the hypothesis that hyperbaric exposure inhibits nociceptive processing in the trigeminal spinal nucleus caudalis and C1 spinal neurons. We investigated the c-Fos-like immunoreactivity of the brainstem and upper cerv...
