  • Prdm12 is a conserved regulator of pain-sensing neurons: a potential target for pain therapy

    Prdm12 is necessary for survival of developing nociceptors. It initiates and maintains expression of the neurotrophin receptor, TrkA, whose pathway is disrupted in human congenital insensitivity to pain (CIP). Desederio et al. publish in Cell Reports using Xenopus as part of their study, find retinoic acid induces prdm12 which then cooperates with ngn1 and ngn2 to promote nociceptor fate.
