Serotonergic mechanisms on breathing modulation in the rat locus coeruleus
(Pflugers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology, 2010-02-01) [Artigo]
The locus coeruleus (LC) is a noradrenergic nucleus that plays an important role in the ventilatory response to hypercapnia. This nucleus is densely innervated by serotonergic fibers and contains high density of serotonin ...
Locus coeruleus noradrenergic neurons and CO2 drive to breathing
(Pflugers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology, 2008-03-01) [Artigo]
The Locus coeruleus (LC) has been suggested as a CO2 chemoreceptor site in mammals. In the present study, we assessed the role of LC noradrenergic neurons in the cardiorespiratory and thermal responses to hypercapnia. To ...
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 ...
TRPV1 inhibits the ventilatory response to hypoxia in adult rats, but not the CO 2 -drive to breathe
(Pharmaceuticals, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
Receptors of the transient receptor potential (TRP) channels superfamily are expressed in many tissues and have different physiological functions. However, there are few studies investigating the role of these channels in ...
