Increase of glutamate in satellite glial cells of the trigeminal ganglion in a rat model of craniofacial neuropathic pain.

Satellite glial cells (SGCs) that envelop the cell bodies of neurons in sensory ganglia have been shown to both release glutamate, and be activated by glutamate in the context of nociceptive signaling. However, little is known about the subpopulations of SGCs that are activated following nerve injury and whether glutamate mechanisms in the SGCs are involved in the pathologic pain.
