Reduced inflammatory pain in mice deficient in the differential screening-selected gene aberrative in neuroblastoma.

Differential screening-selected gene aberrative in neuroblastoma (Dan) protein is produced in small neurons of dorsal root ganglia. Thermal and mechanical allodynia and Fos expression in the spinal dorsal horn evoked by inflammation and neuropathic pain were investigated using Dan-deficient mice. Mice showed pain reactions induced by the introduction of complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) into their hind paw (inflammatory pain model) and after sciatic nerve ligation (neuropathic pain model). In the inflammatory pain model, thermal and mechanical pain thresholds in Dan-deficient mice were significantly higher than those of wild-type mice. The number of Fos-immunoreactive cells in the dorsal horn during the inflammatory period was significantly less in Dan-deficient mice. However, in the neuropathic pain model, no differences in thermal hypersensitivity, mechanical allodynia, or the number of Fos-immunoreactive cells in the dorsal horn were observed between the mice. These data suggest that Dan may be a neuromodulator in inflammatory pain.[1]
