BackgroundInflammation associated chronic pain is a global clinical problem, affecting millions of people worldwide. However, the underlying mechanism of inflammation associated chronic pain remains unclear. Complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) induced cutaneous inflammation rat has been widely used as an inflammation-induced pain hypersensitivity model.MethodsHerein, we presented a transcriptomic profile of CFA-induced rat dorsal root ganglion via an approach targeting gene expression, DNA

Integrated analysis further demonstrated that AP-1 network, which may work as a regulator of inflammation response, is sophisticatedly regulated at both transcriptomic and epigenetic level.ConclusionsWe believe our data will not only provide drug screening targets for treating chronic pain and inflammation, but also shed a light on the molecular network inflammation induced hyperalgesia.
