Capsaicin is an agonist at the TRPV1 receptor, a ligand-gated non-selective cation channel. Exhibits neuroprotective effects in a model of transient global cerebral ischemia. Induces release of substance P from afferent nociceptive specific neurons. Constituent of cayenne pepper. Powerful excitant of peropheral sensory nerve endings, specifically unmyelinated afferent neurons (C-fibers). Reversibly inhibits aggregation of platelets.
