Details for anatomical structure: spinal cord

EndoNet ID: ENC00357

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

    Induced phenotype:

    • sensory perception of pain
      • VR1 is essential for selective modalities of pain sensation and for tissue injury-induced thermal hyperalgesia. [1]
      • Inflammatory mediators augment nociceptor thermal responsiveness, in part, through their actions on VR1. [1]
  • Receptor: OPRL1
