[Electroacupuncture at “Jiaji” (EX-B2) induced down-regulation of OX-42 and P2X4 in lumbar spinal cord contributes to its analgesic after-effect in rats with chronic constriction injury].


To investigate the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at "Jiaji" (EX-B2) at different time points on the expression of OX-42 (a monoclonal antibody with specific expression of complement receptor-3 in spinal microglial cells) and purinergic receptor P2X4 (P2X4) in rats with chronic constriction injury (CCI) of the sciatic nerve, as well as the possible after-effect mechanism of EA analgesia in neuropathic pain.
