Targeted ablation of cardiac sympathetic neurons reduces resting, reflex and exercise-induced sympathetic activation in conscious rats.

Summary: This work examines the capability of CTB-SAP (Cat. #IT-14) to eliminate cardiac sympathetic neurons. The right and left stellate ganglia of rats were each injected with 10 µg of CTB-SAP. Lesioned animals displayed physiolo-gical differences from controls, as well as specific reduction of numbers of neurons in the stellate ganglion and spinal cord.
