Position and Blood Supply of the Carotid Body in a Kenyan Population
(Sociedad Chilena de Anatomía, 2011)
Plasticity of cardiovascular chemoreflexes after prolonged unilateral carotid body denervation: implications for its therapeutic use
Unilateral carotid body denervation has been proposed as treatment for sympathetic-related human diseases such as systolic heart failure, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, and cardiometabolic diseases. The long-term ...
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 ...
Nitric oxide and carotid body chemoreception
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2001)
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 ...
The carotid body detects circulating tumor necrosis factor-alpha to activate a sympathetic anti-inflammatory reflex
Recent evidence has suggested that the carotid bodies might act as immunological sensors, detecting pro-inflammatory mediators and signalling to the central nervous system, which, in turn, orchestrates autonomic responses. ...
Chemical and electric transmission in the carotid body chemoreceptor complex
