Abstract

P2X3 receptors are ion channels expressed by autonomic and sensory nerves and specialised in transducing extracellular ATP signals. Structural data, together with functional and biochemical studies, suggest that conformational changes of P2X3 receptors upon agonist binding influence downstream intracellular molecular mechanisms relevant for neuronal responses. Activity of P2X3 receptors is implicated in pain, itch, asthma, cardiovascular dysfunction and other pathologies. The study of these receptors has therefore a large potential in the field of drug development and interdisciplinary efforts could clarify molecular mechanisms controlling P2X3 receptor function in different physiological or pathological contexts.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 April 2020.
All research outputs
#5,629,904
of 17,883,304 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#822
of 4,078 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#109,119
of 289,260 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,883,304 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 67th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,078 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 289,260 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 61% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
