The article presents the abstract of the study "Mechanical Stimulation and B2 but not B1 Receptor Agonist Lead to Ca2+ Increase in Sensory Neurons." It investigates the cellular level whether functional B1 receptors are induced, and whether functional B2 receptors are upregulated in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons. Moreover, an investigation through Northern blot analysis was made to confirm whether there is induction of B1 receptor expression in rat L4/L5 DRG.

In many cases, this patterning is caused by intrinsic mechanisms rather than external signals. In this review, we...
