Pain Control by Targeting Oxidized Phospholipids: Functions, Mechanisms, Perspectives

Throughout the lipidome oxidized phospholipids (OxPL) type a category of chemically extremely reactive metabolites. OxPL are acutely produced in infected tissue and act as endogenous, proalgesic (pain-inducing) metabolites. They excite sensory, nociceptive neurons by activating transient receptor potential ion channels, particularly TRPA1 and TRPV1. Below inflammatory circumstances, OxPL-mediated receptor potentials even potentiate the motion potential firing charge […]
