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 ...
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 ...
