Table 1 Expression of neurokinin 1 and bradykinin receptors in cervical DRGs ipsilateral to the inflamed knee joint

From: Monoarticular antigen-induced arthritis leads to pronounced bilateral upregulation of the expression of neurokinin 1 and bradykinin 2 receptors in dorsal root ganglion neurons of rats

  Percentage of neurons with:
Experimental group SP–gold- BK–gold-
  binding sites binding sites
Untreated control animals 10.4 ± 2.2 39.2 ± 3.9
Immunized rats without knee injection 11.6 ± 0.9 38.4 ± 4.3
AIA 3 days 10.2 ± 1.9 42.0 ± 3.2
AIA 42 days 8.4 ± 3.6 42.8 ± 4.4
