ATP-gated P2X3 receptors are important transducers of painful stimuli. This study investigated the role of calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine protein kinase (CASK) in interacting and controlling P2X3 receptor expression and function in sensory ganglion neurons. As CASK-mediated control of P2X3 receptors was dependent on the receptor activation state, CASK might be an intracellular gateway to regulate purinergic nociceptive signaling.
