C1 neurons: the body’s EMTs.

Guyenet PG, Stornetta RL, Bochorishvili G, Depuy SD, Burke PG, Abbott SB (2013) C1 neurons: the body’s EMTs. Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 305(3):R187-204 . doi: 10.1152/ajpregu.00054.2013

Summary: Although mainly known for their involvement in the control of arterial pressure, C1 neurons are also suspected to participate in numerous other physiological processes such as neuroendocrine response, glucose homeostasis, food consumption, and others. This review discusses the role of these neurons as ’emergency medical technicians’ – cells that produce and modulate physiological survival responses to acute physical stress. The use of Anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03) to delineate C1 neurons in the rostral ventrolateral aspect of the medulla oblongata is discussed.
