Acupuncture Alleviates Colorectal Hypersensitivity and Correlates with the Regulatory Mechanism of TrpV1 and p-ERK

Figure 5

EA blunts zymosan-induced expression of TrpV1. Western blot shows detectable signal of TrpV1 in colon. TrpV1 expression slightly increased in response of EA in group ( versus , ), while it is dramatically induced by zymosan injection( versus , ). EA obviously compromises zymosan-induced upregulation of TrpV1( versus , ) (#Acc-030, Alomone Labs, 150KD, delusion: 1 : 800).
