P2Y1 receptor-mediated potentiation of inspiratory motor output in neonatal rat in vitro.

Alvares T, Revill A, Huxtable A, Lorenz C, Funk G (2014) P2Y1 receptor-mediated potentiation of inspiratory motor output in neonatal rat in vitro. J Physiol 592:3089-3111. doi: 10.1113/jphysiol.2013.268136 PMID: 24879869

Summary: P2YR’s are metabotropic purinergic receptors found in some parts of the CNS. A subtype of this receptor excites rhythm generating networks in the preB√∂tzinger complex. In order to better understand the role of these receptors in modulation of motor output the authors used brainstem-spinal cord and medullary slice preparations from neonatal rats to investigate P2Y1R signaling on specific neurons that innervate diaphragm and airway muscles. Anti-NK1r (Cat. #AB-N33AP) at a 1:1000 dilution was used during the immunohistochemistry. The data suggest that loss of purinergic modulation contributes to motoneuron excitability.
