Substance P (Harmar AJ et al, 1986) is an neuropeptide, 11 amino-acids in length, that acts as a neurotransmitter for pain response neurons. It does this by binding to its endogenous receptor neurokinin 1 (NK1R, substance P receptor) which belongs to the tachykinin receptor sub-family of GPCRs (Takeda Y et al, 1991).
