ATP in the locus coeruleus as a modulator of cardiorespiratory control in unanaesthetized male rats
(Experimental Physiology, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
Locus coeruleus (LC) noradrenergic neurons are chemosensitive to CO2 and pH in mammals and amphibians and are involved in the CO2-related drive to breathe. Purinergic neuromodulation in the LC is of particular interest ...
Cardiorespiratory effects of gap junction blockade in the locus coeruleus in unanesthetized adult rats
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The locus coeruleus (LC) plays an important role in central chemoreception. In young rats (P9 or younger), 85% of LC neurons increase firing rate in response to hypercapnia vs. only about 45% of neurons from rats P10 or ...
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 ...
Age and gender influence the cardiorespiratory function and metabolic rate of broiler chicks during normocapnia and hypercapnia
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2014-08-15) [Artigo]
Pulmonary ventilation (V-E), body temperature (Tb), mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (f(H)) and metabolic rate (V-O2) were measured in 10 (d10)- and 21 (d21)-day-old male and female chicks exposed to 7% CO2. Under ...
