Role of cerebrospinal fluid-contacting nucleus in sodium sensing and sodium appetite.

Xing D, Wu Y, Li G, Song S, Liu Y, Liu H, Wang X, Fei Y, Zhang C, Li Y, Zhang L (2015) Role of cerebrospinal fluid-contacting nucleus in sodium sensing and sodium appetite. Physiol Behav 147:291-299. doi: 10.1016/j.physbeh.2015.04.034

Summary: Sodium concentration in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is tightly regulated, and this regulation requires numerous sensors spread throughout the brain. Here the authors injected 900 ng CTB-SAP (Cat. #IT-14) into the lateral ventricles. Investigation of spontaneous and induced sodium intake indicates the CSF-contacting nucleus is an important link in the sodium sensing network, and interacts with the lateral parabrachial nucleus.
