Enhancement of P2X3 Receptor-Mediated Currents by Lysophosphatidic Acid in Rat Primary Sensory Neurons

Lysophosphatidic acidity (LPA), a fat metabolite, plays a part in both neuropathic and inflammatory discomfort through LPA1 receptors. P2X3 receptor has additionally been proven to sign up during these pathological processes. However, it’s still unclear whether there’s a hyperlink between LPA signaling and P2X3 receptors in discomfort. Herein, we reveal that a practical interaction together in rat dorsal root ganglia (DRG) neurons. Pretreatment of LPA concentration-dependently enhanced a,ß-methylene-ATP (a,ß-meATP)-caused inward currents mediated by P2X3 receptors. LPA considerably elevated the maximal current response of the,ß-meATP, showing an upward shift from the concentration-response curve for any,ß-meATP. The LPA enhancement was independent around the clamping-current. Enhancement of P2X3 receptor-mediated currents by LPA was avoided through the LPA1 receptor antagonist Ki16198, although not through the LPA2 receptor antagonist H2L5185303. The LPA-caused potentiation seemed to be attenuated by intracellular dialysis of either G-protein inhibitor or protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor, although not by Rho inhibitor. Furthermore, LPA considerably altered the membrane potential depolarization and action potential burst caused with a,ß-meATP in DRG neurons. Finally, LPA exacerbated a,ß-meATP- caused nociceptive behaviors in rats. These results recommended that LPA potentiated the running activity of P2X3 receptors in rat primary physical neurons through activation from the LPA1 receptor and it is downstream PKC instead of Rho signaling path, indicating a singular peripheral mechanism underlying the sensitization of discomfort.
