J Physiol 597(24):5799-5820. doi: 10.1113/JP278845
Objective: To investigate the potential contribution of RVLM‐C1 neurons to irregular breathing.
Summary: Findings suggest that RVLM‐C1 neurons play a pivotal role in breathing irregularities in volume overload HF, and mediate the sympathetic responses induced by acute central chemoreflex activation.
Usage: Anti-DBH-SAP was used to selectively lesion RVLM‐C1 neurons. Reduction (∼65%) of RVLM‐C1 neurons resulted in attenuation of irregular breathing, decreased apnea‐hypopnea incidence and improved cardiac autonomic control.
