From the authors: “We found that acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) are required for immediate exercise-induced muscle pain (IEIP). Moreover, exercise training prevented IEIP and was correlated with downregulation of ASICs in sensory neurons.” 

This study is highlighted as one of August’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
