Microglia release cytokines and other proinflammatory molecules, as well as detect signaling factors from peripheral immune cells (1). Together, these signals can enhance the release of excitatory neurotransmitters from pain-transmitting neurons, leading to increased neuronal firing (2). Normally, when glial cells called astrocytes detect an increase in the extracellular concentrations of neurotransmitters, their cellular processes called endfeet begin to take up greater amounts of the molecules in an attempt to bring the hyperactive synapses under control (3). In persistent pain, these cells contain fewer of the molecular transporters responsible for this neurotransmitter removal. Glial cytokines and chemokines can also cause greater numbers of receptors to be displayed on the postsynaptic terminal of the pain-transmitting synapse, further promoting neuroexcitability (4).
