A5 noradrenergic neurons and breathing control in neonate rats

Taxini CL, Marques DA, Bícego KC, Gargaglioni LH (2021) A5 noradrenergic neurons and breathing control in neonate rats. Pflugers Arch 473(6):859-872. doi: 10.1007/s00424-021-02550-1

Summary: In this study, the authors investigated the participation of A5 noradrenergic neurons in neonates (P7-8 and P14-15) in the control of ventilation during hypoxia and hypercapnia. data suggest that noradrenergic neurons of the A5 region in neonate rats do not participate in the control of ventilation under baseline and hypercapnic conditions, but exert an inhibitory modulation on breathing variability under hypoxic challenge in early life (P7-8).

Usage: Anti-DBH-SAP (420 ng/μL) or saporin (SAP, control) was injected into the A5 region of neonatal male Wistar rats.
