Nav1.7 subunit alpha, or SCN9A, is a member of the voltage gated sodium channel family. It is expressed at the terminal ends of sensory neurons in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and in trigeminal and sympathetic ganglion neurons. A major function of Nav1.7 is the generation and conduction of action potentials in nociceptors, or “pain receptors” and thus involved in pain sensation. Changes in Nav1.7 expression have been linked to primary erythermalgia, primary erythermalgia, and Congenital insensitivity to pain
