Her interpretation of the results is that in sensory nerves with both the chloroquine itch receptor and the wasabi pain receptor, when chloroquine binds to its receptor, it subsequently opens the wasabi receptor, which depolarizes the nerve cell and sends an itch signal to the brain.
This will depolarize the cell because of the influx of cations through the AMPA receptor ion pore.
If the stimulus is great enough and fast enough to cause the membrane potential to depolarize below a certain threshold level, an action potential will be elicited.
