Reappearance of calcitonin gene-related peptide-like immunoreactivity in the dorsal horn in the long-term dorsal root transected rat

, : Reappearance of calcitonin gene-related peptide-like immunoreactivity in the dorsal horn in the long-term dorsal root transected rat. Brain Research 585(1-2): 400-404

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-immunoreactive (IR) fibers in the rat dorsal horn superficial laminae vanish almost completely 3 weeks following unilateral dorsal rhizotomy. After a prolonged survival (20 weeks) of dorsal rhizotomy there is, however, a reappearance of CGRP-IR fibers in the corresponding laminae of the dorsal horn. The density of such IR fibres showed a clear gradient with the lowest number found in the midlesion region and an increase in density towards the neighboring, intact segments. In normal as well as lesioned rats, no neurons intrinsic to the dorsal horn contained detectable levels of CGRP-like immunoreactivity (LI). Furthermore, no cells could, by use of in situ hybridization, be demonstrated to contain detectable levels of mRNA encoding for CGRP in the dorsal horn. Based on these findings, we suggest that the CGRP-IR fibers observed following long-term survival of dorsal rhizotomy derive from proliferating collateral branches of primary afferents of neighboring intact segments.
