This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Enhancement of behavioral sensitization (allodynia) to nerve injury in wild-type mice.
  • Fig. S2. Subcellular fractionation of synaptosomes.
  • Fig. S3. The amount of NMDARs in insular cortical homogenates from wild-type mice shows no change on day 7 after nerve injury.
  • Fig. S4. Comparison of the amounts of GluN2B and GluN2A in insular cortical homogenates from wild-type, AC1−/−, AC8−/−, and AC1&AC8−/− mice.
  • Fig. S5. Elimination of behavioral sensitization to nerve injury in AC8−/− mice but not in AC1−/− mice.
  • Fig. S6. Forskolin and rolipram treatment does not affect the amount of synaptic NMDARs in insular cortical slices from AC8−/− mice.
  • Fig. S7. ESI-09 does not affect the increase in the amount of synaptic GluN2B or GluN2A induced by forskolin and rolipram.
  • Fig. S8. PP2 blocks the increase in the amount of synaptic GluN2B and GluN2A induced by forskolin and rolipram.
