Objective: To determine the role played by RVLM-C1 neurons in cardiac autonomic imbalance, arrhythmogenesis and cardiac dysfunction in volume overload-induced heart failure.
Summary: RVLM-C1 neurons were selectively ablated using Anti-DBH-SAP and measures of cardiacautonomictone, function, and arrhythmia incidence were evaluated. Cardiac autonomic imbalance, arrhythmogenesis and cardiac dysfunction were present in HF rats and improved after Anti-DBH-SAP treatment.
Usage: 7.5ng/100nl of sterile saline solution was injected bilaterally into the RVLM.
