  • spinal
  • Pain from the spinal nerves is usually sharp, shooting or burning and associated with tingling or numbness. (hubpages.com)
  • Shingles, which is reactivation of the Herpes zoster virus in one of the spinal nerves, causes pain, followed (after several days or few weeks) by red, itchy and burning rash in the form of a stripe that travels around the chest, usually only on one side. (hubpages.com)
  • tissue
  • But, in all the more complex animals, a peculiar fibrous tissue -- nerve -- serves as the agent by which contractile tissue is affected by changes occurring elsewhere, and by which contractions thus initiated are co-ordinated and brought into harmonious combination. (1902encyclopedia.com)
  • The muscle cells on the scaffold and in the body bonded and the body's native nerve sprouts fed electrical impulses into the tissue, creating a stable nerve-muscle connection. (eurekalert.org)
  • Homogenates from gastrocnemius muscles of mice injected with the venom of the snake Bothrops asper or with 2 tissue-damaging toxins were added to cultures of C2C12 myogenic cells. (wiley.com)
  • Our observations suggest that traces of venom in muscle tissue might inhibit myotube formation and preclude a successful regenerative response. (wiley.com)
  • tibialis
  • Methods: Three microbiopsies were obtained from the most bulky part of the tibialis and masseter muscles of seven and six healthy men and seven and six age-matched healthy women, respectively, while traditional open biopsies were obtained from the most painful spot of the masseter of five female patients and from a similar region of the masseter muscle of five healthy, age-matched women.

  • receptors
  • If this were the major mechanism, cross-linking ACh receptors by tetravalent concanavalin A (Con A) should immobilize receptors and prevent nerve-induced receptor accumulation. (jneurosci.org)
  • We examined the effect of Con A on nerve-induced receptor accumulation and on the mobility of ACh receptors in cultured Xenopus muscle cells. (jneurosci.org)
  • The Con A treatment prevented rapid diffusion of ACh receptors as well as nerve-induced receptor accumulation. (jneurosci.org)
  • In contrast, divalent succinyl Con A did not affect the mobility of ACh receptors nor prevent nerve-induced ACh receptor accumulation. (jneurosci.org)
  • When the Con A concentration was varied, the blocking effect on the nerve-induced receptor accumulation changed in parallel with the mobile fraction of receptors. (jneurosci.org)
  • Newly inserted ACh receptors after the Con A treatment were found to be mobile and to accumulate at the nerve-contact region. (jneurosci.org)
  • In these cultures, new receptors accumulated around old, immobilized receptors in some areas along the nerve contact. (jneurosci.org)
  • This observation suggests that new receptors were inserted elsewhere and migrated to the nerve-contact region surrounding immobilized old ones. (jneurosci.org)
  • In addition to the accumulation of receptors, the nerve disperses preexisting receptor clusters prior to induction of high-density regions along the contact area, and, at this early stage, denervation disperses nerve-induced receptor clusters in Xenopus cultures (Kuromi and Kidokoro, 1984a, b). (jneurosci.org)
  • Background: Previous studies have shown that 5-HT3-antagonists reduce muscle pain, but there are no studies that have investigated the expression of 5-HT3-receptors in human muscles. (uib.no)
  • These findings indicate that 5-HT3-receptors might be up-regulated in myofascial TMD and could serve as potential biomarkers of chronic muscle pain. (uib.no)
  • Myofascial
  • A stretched tendon will eventually heal on its own in few weeks, but if you have myofascial pain with muscle knots you might need to change the way how you sit or quit some repetitive exercise, for example. (hubpages.com)
  • Myofascial pain syndrome includes pain and palpable muscle knots in the upper back caused by bad posture during sitting or repetitive movements with arms (assembly workers) or repetitive hard exercise. (hubpages.com)
  • membrane
  • 1977). Randomly diffusing ACh receptor molecules in the membrane may be trapped at the nerve-contact region to form a high receptor density area. (jneurosci.org)
  • density
  • Mean intraepidermal nerve fiber (IENF) density was in the lower normal age-adjusted range, 7.2 ± 2.9/mm (normal ≥7/mm), and was slightly below the normal range in 45% of POTS patients. (wiley.com)
