Abstract

The application of cyclophosphamide to rats was used to induce interstitial cystitis. Behavioural studies indicated a strong pain reaction that developed within 2 h and levelled off thereafter causing a constant pain during the following 18 h. Neurons prepared from L6/S1 dorsal root ganglia innervating the urinary bladder responded to the application of capsaicin or α,β-methylene ATP (α,β-meATP) with an increase of intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i). The [Ca 2+]i responses to capsaicin were identical in the dorsal root ganglion cells of cyclophosphamide- and saline-treated rats, whereas α,β-meATP induced less increase in [Ca2+]i in the cyclophosphamide-treated animals than in their saline-treated counterparts. Hence, α,β-meATP-sensitive P2X3 and/or P2X2/3 receptors of L6/S1 dorsal root ganglion neurons were functionally downregulated during subacute pain caused by experimental cystitis. In contrast, capsaicin-sensitive vanilloid 1 receptors did not react to the same procedure. Thoracal dorsal root ganglia, not innervating the urinary bladder, were also unaltered in their responsiveness to α,β-meATP by cyclophosphamide treatment.
