Occurrence of Ochoterenella digiticauda (Nematoda: Onchocercidae) infecting the gladiator frog Hypsiboas lundii (Anura: Hylidae) in Brazil
(Herpetology Notes, 2013-03-17) [Artigo]
Hypsiboas lundii is a gladiator frog endemic to the Cerrado of central and southeastern Brazil. This species in reproductive period inhabits streams in primary and secondary forests. Despite its wide distribution, the ...
Ionotropic but not metabotropic glutamatergic receptors in the Locus Coeruleus modulate the hypercapnic ventilatory response in unanesthetized rats
(FASEB Journal, 2013-04-01) [Resumo]
Ionotropic but not metabotropic glutamatergic receptors in the locus coeruleus modulate the hypercapnic ventilatory response in unanaesthetized rats
(Acta Physiologica, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
Aim: Central chemoreceptors are important to detect changes of CO2/H+, and the Locus coeruleus (LC) is one of the many putative central chemoreceptor sites. Here, we studied the contribution of LC glutamatergic receptors ...
Light microscope observations on the epididymis of paca (Agouti paca)
(Italian Journal of Anatomy and Embryology, 2013-06-14) [Artigo]
The features of paca epididymis, based on its appearance in light microscope, is described in this paper. The cellular population of the epithelial lining comprises principal cells, basal cells, apical cells, narrows cells, ...
Carotid arteries in the dog: Structure and histophysiology
(International Journal of Morphology, 2006-08-07) [Artigo]
Light microscopy analysis of the mural structure of the common carotid artery, internal carotid artery and external carotid artery in mongrel dog revealed variability in the middle values of vascular diameter and thickness ...
Double aortic arch in a dog (Canis familiaris): a case report
(Anatomia Histologia Embryologia-Journal of Veterinary Medicine Series C, 2001-12-01) [Artigo]
We herein report a case of a double aortic arch in a 10-week-old male dog of no defined race, which presented episodes of regurgitation at the time of weaning. This vascular malformation was Characterized by the persistence ...
The orexin receptor 1 in the locus coeruleus modulates the hypercapnic ventilatory response in unanesthetized rats
(Faseb Journal, 2014-04-01) [Resumo]
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 ...
Analysis of metabolic pools in broilers chicks
(Isotopes In Environmental And Health Studies, 2015-09-18) [Artigo]
This paper shows the possibility of obtaining new parameters for the mathematical modelling of data on stable isotopes in biological systems and its application in obtaining data on metabolic pools of blood plasma, blood ...
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 ...
