Capsaicin/vanilloid (transient receptor potential vanilloid 1, (TRPV1) receptor has been shown to be expressed in gastrointestinal tract and play a role as a member of sensory ion channel superfamily. The G315C polymorphism affects the TRPV1 gene and alters its protein level. We aimed to investigate the effect of TRPV1 G315C polymorphism on functional dyspepsia (FD) in a Japanese population.
