Taxini CL, Takakura AC, Gargaglioni LH, Moreira TS (2011) Control of the central chemoreflex by A5 noradrenergic neurons in rats. Neuroscience 199:177-186. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroscience.2011.09.068
Summary: The A5 group of noradrenergic neurons in the ventrolateral pons is involved in the control of sympathetic and respiratory networks. Using anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03) the authors eliminated TH+ neurons in order to clarify which aspects of respiration are modulated by A5 neurons. Rats received bilateral 4.2-ng injections of the toxin into the A5 region. The results suggest that A5 noradrenergic neurons are involved in control of mean arterial pressure, splanchnic sympathetic nerve activity, and phrenic nerve activity.
