From capsaicin to TRPV1:

In memory of János Szolcsányi

Temperature
Deadline:
31 January 2021

Call for Papers

Fifty years ago, the Hungarian pharmacologist János Szolcsányi and his colleagues made the seminal observations that acute systemic exposure to capsaicin reduced body temperature in rats, and that ablation of capsaicin-sensitive neurons rendered animals incapable of defeating themselves against overheating. Years later, the capsaicin receptor, now known as TRPV1 (transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily V member 1), turned out to be a heat-activated channel.

In memory of Professor János Szolcsányi (1938-2018), the journal Temperature has opened this Call for papers broadly related to the TRPV1 channel, with the emphases on heat sensation and thermoregulation. Original research papers and reviews covering the disciplines of physiology, pharmacology, neurosciences, and drug development are welcome. It is expected that the scope of submitted papers will cover a broad variety of topics: from the "obvious" (everything related to thermal effects) and applied (the development of TRPV1 antagonists) to the highly controversial (TRPV1 expression in the brain), theoretical (what makes TRPV1 heat-sensitive), "burning" (the role of TRPV1 in burn injury), and more obscure (roles of TRP channels in cancer).

The deadline for manuscript submission is: January 31, 2021. You can submit your manuscript here.

Temperature is published quarterly, both online and in print. It is indexed in PubMed and has a CiteScore above 2. The journal accepts format-free submissions. Manuscripts rejected from the leading journals in their fields can be processed through the Expediated Peer Review following the guidelines here; please email Editor-in-Chief.

The Guest Editors of this Call for papers are Professor Szolcsányi's colleagues and compatriots: Arpad Szallasi, Erika Pintér, and Andras Garami.

Please contact Dr. Szallasi with questions.
