  1. Moilanen L, Hämäläinen M, Nummenmaa E, Ilmarinen P, Vuolteenaho K, Nieminen R, et al. Monosodium iodoacetate-induced inflammation and joint pain are reduced in TRPA1 deficient mice--potential role of TRPA1 in osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis Cartilage. 2015;23:2017-26 pubmed publisher
    ..TRPA1 was found to mediate acute inflammation and the development of degenerative cartilage changes and joint pain in MIA-induced experimental OA in the mouse. The results reveal TRPA1 as a potential mediator and drug target in OA. ..
