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 ...
Temperature effects on baroreflex control of heart rate in the toad, Rhinella schneideri
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. Part A, Molecular & Integrative Physiology, 2015) [Artigo]
For an adequate blood supply to support metabolic demands, vertebrates regulate blood pressure to maintain sufficient perfusion to avoid ischemia and other tissue damage like edema. Using a pharmacological approach ...
