Orexinergic neurons are involved in the chemosensory control of breathing during the dark phase in a Parkinson’s disease model.

Oliveira LM, Falquetto B, Moreira TS, Takakura AC (2018) Orexinergic neurons are involved in the chemosensory control of breathing during the dark phase in a Parkinson’s disease model. Exp Neurol 309:107-118. doi: 10.1016/j.expneurol.2018.08.004

Objective: To determine the involvement of orexin cells from the lateral hypothalamus/perifornical area (LH/PeF) on breathing.

Summary: The degeneration of orexinergic neurons in this model of PD can be related to impaired chemoreceptor function in the dark phase.

Usage: For lesions of LH/PeF, two injections of Orexin-B-SAP or Rabbit IgG-SAP (100 ng/μl) were made into the lateral hypothalamus / perifornical area (LH/PeF).

Related Products: Orexin-B-SAP (Cat. #IT-20), Rabbit IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-35)
