gastrin-releasing peptide receptor
Gastrointestinal peptides and itch sensation.
Boston, United States. In Curr Opin Endocrinol Diabetes Obes, Feb 2015
RECENT FINDINGS: GRP and its high-affinity GRP receptor (GRPR) have been identified as key regulators in the spinal cord itch pathway and may be involved in the maintenance of chronic itch sensation.
Cellular basis of itch sensation.
Saint Louis, United States. In Science, 2009
Although our previous study suggested that gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) is an itch-specific gene in the spinal cord, a long-standing question of whether there are separate neuronal pathways for itch and pain remains unsettled.
