Chelerythrine, a PKC inhibitor, inhibits the tachyphylaxis of capsaicin-induced current. The desensitized current was shown in the subsequent 1 μM capsaicin treatment (left panel) at every 100 s. The inhibition of desensitization was shown in the presence of 1 μM chelerythrine of the internal pipette solution (middle panel). Right panel shows the summary of peak amplitude ratio of second and third divided by the first capsaicin-induced current between in the presence of and in the absence 1 μM chelerythrine.
