Schreihofer AM, Stornetta RL, Guyenet PG (2000) Regulation of sympathetic tone and arterial pressure by rostral ventrolateral medulla after depletion of C1 cells in rat. J Physiol 529(1):221-236. doi: 10.1111/j.1469-7793.2000.00221.x
Summary: The rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) controls and maintains basal sympathetic vasomotor tone, and is also vital to many sympathetic reflexes. Sympathetic nerve activity and arterial pressure correlate with the C1 adrenergic neurons in the RVLM, but there are also non-catecholaminergic neurons present. Schreihofer et al. used anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03) to eliminate the C1 cells of the RVLM to investigate the non-catecholaminergic neuron contribution to vasomotor tone. Their data indicate C1 cells are necessary for full expression of sympathoexitatory responses generated by the RVLM.
