DNA hydroxylation catalyzed by Tet dioxygenases occurs abundantly in neurons in mammals. However, effects of ten-eleven translocation methylcytosine dioxygenase 1 (TET1) expression and hydroxymethylation status on neuron injury remain unclear. This study was designed to explore the effects of TET1 and TET2 expression in the inflammatory pain of rats induced by complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA). Mechanical paw withdrawal threshold (PWT) and thermal withdrawal latency (TWL) were detected to assess pain behavior. The expression of TET1 and TET2 were measured in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) with western blotting analysis. Immunofluorescence staining is employed to detect the expression and co-location of TRPV1 with TET1. Intrathecal administration of Bobcat339 was used to inhibit TET1 function in DRG. The PWT and TWL of rats were significantly reduced after CFA Injection. Western blot results showed that the expression of TET1 was significantly increased at 3 d after CFA injection, but TET2 had no statistical difference. Immunofluorescence results showed that TET1 was co-localized with TRPV1. Intrathecal administration of Bobcat339 improved mechanical and thermal pain threshold in CFA rats. Our findings highlight the role of TET1 in chronic inflammatory pain model. The expression of TET1 was increased in CFA rats, and suppression of TET1 will ameliorate inflammatory pain.
