      • Receptor: GRP-R

      • Receptor: PRLR

      • Receptor: EP1

        • acid-induced pain hypersensitivity within the non-acid-exposed esophagus (secondary hyperalgesia) is mediated by PGE(2) activation of the EP-1 receptor [1]

        Induced phenotype:

        • visceral pain hypersensitivity
          • prostaglandine e2 receptor-1 mediates acid-induced visceral pain hypersensitivity in humans. [1]
