Orexinergic system in the locus coeruleus modulates the CO2 ventilatory response
(Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology, 2016-05-01) [Artigo]
The orexins are hypothalamic neuropeptides involved in an array of functions such as regulation of sleep/wake states and chemoreception to CO2/pH. The locus coeruleus (LC) is a chemosensitive site and expresses an extensive ...
Orexin in the toad Rhinella schneideri: The location of orexinergic neurons and the role of orexin in ventilatory responses to hypercarbia and hypoxia
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2014-11-27) [Artigo]
Recent reports have suggested that orexins, also known as hypocretins, play an important role in the modulation of respiratory control in mammals, but there are no data available describing the role of the orexinergic ...
Hypoxic and hypercapnic ventilatory responses in rats with polycystic ovaries
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2015) [Artigo]
In female rats, a single injection of estradiol valerate (EV) results in effects that are similar to those observed in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). We hypothesized that EV-induced PCOS affects breathing ...
