The retrotrapezoid nucleus: Central chemoreceptor and regulator of breathing automaticity.

Guyenet PG, Stornetta RL, Souza GMPR, Abbott SBG, Shi Y, Bayliss DA. (2019) The retrotrapezoid nucleus: Central chemoreceptor and regulator of breathing automaticity. Trends Neurosci 42(11):807-824. doi: 10.1016/j.tins.2019.09.002

Summary: This review describes the neurons of the retrotrapezoid nucleus (RTN), their transcriptome, developmental lineage, and anatomical projections. The authors also review their contribution to CO2 homeostasis and to the regulation of breathing automaticity during sleep and wake.

Usage: Local injection of SSP-SAP to kill RTN neurons.
