Jeffrey Mogil and collaborators show the P2X7 protein plays a critical role in pain sensitivity

Jeffrey Mogil

Jeffrey Mogil, from McGill, and Michael Salter, from University of Toronto have recently demonstrated dans the sensitivity to pain of a mouse feels depends on the form of the protein P2X7 it carries. Better yet, they have shown they can block pain by blocking this protein. The same variants of P2X7 are associated, in humans, to variable pain sensitivity. Learn more about the discovery in a recent article from Le Devoir (in French only)
