Role of neurokinin-1 expressing neurons in the locus coeruleus on ventilatory and cardiovascular responses to hypercapnia
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2010-06-30) [Artigo]
We assessed the role of NK-1 receptors (NK1R) expressing neurons in the locus coeruleus (LC) on cardiorespiratory responses to hypercapnia. To this end, we injected substance P-saporin conjugate (SP-SAP) to kill NK-1 ...
Mu and kappa opioid receptors of the periaqueductal gray stimulate and inhibit thermogenesis, respectively, during psychological stress in rats
(Pflugers Archiv-european Journal Of Physiology, 2017-09-01) [Artigo]
The periaqueductal gray matter (PAG) is rich in mu and kappa opioid receptors, and this system is involved in thermoregulation, analgesia, and defensive behaviors. No study approached the involvement of the PAG opioids in ...
Baroreflex regulation affects ventilation in the cururu toad Rhinella schneideri
(Journal Of Experimental Biology, 2016-11-15) [Artigo]
Anurans regulate short-term oscillations in blood pressure through changes in heart rate (f(H)), vascular resistance and lymphatic f(H). Lung ventilation in anurans is linked to blood volume homeostasis by facilitating ...
