Position and Blood Supply of the Carotid Body in a Kenyan Population
(Sociedad Chilena de Anatomía, 2011)
Nitric oxide and carotid body chemoreception
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2001)
Selective activation of carotid nerve fibers by acetylcholine applied to the cat petrosal ganglion in vitro
The petrosal ganglion innervates carotid body chemoreceptors through the carotid (sinus) nerve. These primary sensory neurons are activated by transmitters released from receptor (glomus) cells, acetylcholine (ACh) having ...
Acute Effects of Systemic Erythropoietin Injections on Carotid Body Chemosensory Activity Following Hypoxic and Hypercapnic Stimulation
(Springer New York LLC, 2018)
© 2018, Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature. The carotid body (CB) chemoreceptors sense changes in arterial blood gases. Upon stimulation CB chemoreceptors cells release one or more transmitters ...
Chemical and electric transmission in the carotid body chemoreceptor complex
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2005)
Immunosensory signaling by carotid body chemoreceptors
Injections of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) have been used to produce the signs of sepsis and study their underlying mechanisms. Intravenous (IV) injections of LPS in anesthetized cats induce tachypnea, tachycardia and hypotension, ...
