In the pretentorial periaqueductal grey (PAG), the region producing pressor responses, vocalization and other somatic and visceral signs (VPR) of the defence reaction and another region producing pressor responses (PR) were localized by electrical stimulation in adult cats, anesthetized with intraperitoneal chloralose (40 mg/kg) and urethane (400 mg/kg).(More)
Dopamine plays a number of important physiological roles. However, activation of dopamine receptor type-5 (DR5) and its effect in renal epithelial cells have not been studied. Here, we show for the first time that DR5 is localized to primary cilia of LLCPK kidney cells. Renal epithelial cilia are mechanosensory organelles that sense and respond to tubular(More)
Thirty-three cats under intraperitoneal chloralose (40 mg/kg) and urethane (400 mg/kg) anesthesia were used to explore the effect of microinjections (100 nl) of carbachol (CCh, 0.5 M), a cholinergic analogue, glycine (Gly, 1 M) and gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA, 0.4 M) on the cardiovascular-reactive sites in the pontomedulla that responded to microinjection(More)
