Researchers found that when they removed Nppb or its nerve cell, mice stopped itching despite being exposed to a wide array of itch-inducing substances.
Mice and humans share similar nervous systems so the scientists say the Nppb molecule is probably present in people - once they have identified the molecule in humans, drugs could be developed to turn off the itch.
The variants are located on two genes called NPPA and NPPB, which control proteins that relax blood vessels and help the excretion of dietary sodium.
