Grindstaff RJ, Grindstaff RR, Cunningham JT (2000) Baroreceptor sensitivity of rat supraoptic vasopressin neurons involves noncholinergic neurons in the DBB. Am J Physiol Reul Integr Comp Physiol 279:R1934-R1943. doi: 10.1152/ajpregu.2000.279.5.R1934
Summary: Baroreceptors are one component of the system that buffers acute changes in blood pressure. Part of this control stems from the baroreceptor ability to regulate vasopressin release from the neurohypophysis. Using 192-Saporin (Cat. #IT-01) to specifically eliminate cholinergic neurons in the diagonal band of Broca, Grindstaff et al. demonstrated that these neurons are not utilized in the pathway that relays baroreceptor information to the brain.
