Role of brain nitric oxide in the cardiovascular control of bullfrogs
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology - A Molecular and Integrative Physiology, 2013-06-01) [Artigo]
The goal of the present study was to determine if nitric oxide (NO) acting on the brain of bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus) is involved in arterial pressure and heart rate (HR) control by influencing sympathetic activity. ...
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 ...
