  • Description

Trpv1 knockout rat

Nomenclature: SD- Trpv1 tm1sage

Genotype: Homozygous

Description: This model contains a biallelic deletion of the Trpv1 gene, encoding for the transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1. Capsaicin, the component in chili peppers that makes them hot, is an exogenous ligand for Trpv1. Trpv1 is also activated by heat.

Research applications:

  • pain
  • nociception
  • analgesia
  • thermoregulation
  • cannabinoids

Characteristics:

  • homozygous knockout rats exhibit complete loss of Trpv1 protein
  • Trpv1 knockout rats show hyposensitivity to thermal pain via hot plate assay
  • background strain: Sprague-Dawley

Coat color: White, albino.

Strain code: TGRS5530

Bred in: US
