    The story of purinergic neurotransmission and regulation is intimately linked to studies of the somatosensory system. Burnstock's contributions to the discovery of ATP as a primary afferent neurotransmitter, as well as a signal of peripheral tissue damage that depolarised sensory neurons initiated a new period of pain research. The neuro-immune interactions that occur after tissue damage and are important for pain have now also been found to involve purinergic signalling, and adenosine has been demonstrated to have significant analgesic effects. In the pain field as in so many other areas of neuroscience and physiology, Burnstock's contributions have been critical to the expansion of our knowledge about the significance of purines. His mechanistic insights have profound significance for understanding the pain system and further underscore his stature as a pioneer and force for progress in biomedicine. Copyright © 2021.
