Cardiovascular parameters of spontaneously breathing pond turtles (Cyclemys flavomarginata) anaesthetized with chloralose (4 mg 100 g-1) and urethane (40 mg 100 g-1), were examined during exploratory electrical stimulation of the brain stem. Turtles exhibited a low mean systemic arterial blood pressure (MSAP, average 25 mmHg) and slow heart rate (average 24(More)
In 35 adult cats anesthetized with intraperitoneal chloralose and urethane, the ventrolateral medulla was explored by microinjection of kainic acid (KA, 24 mM, 200 nl) with metal electrode-tubing or glass micropipette to determine regions which elicit persistent apnea. Persistent apnea is defined as: (1) In spontaneously breathing cats, termination of(More)
In this paper, uricase, catalase, and electron mediator were coimmobilized on the surface of the tin oxide (SnO2)/indium tin oxide (ITO) glass, to develop a disposable potentiometric uric acid biosensor. The SnO2/ITO glass was employed as a pH sensor, fabricated by sputtering SnO2 thin films on the ITO glass. 3-Glycidyloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTS) was(More)
The origin of medullary cells that form the cardiac vagal branch and the vagal branches in the lower thorax innervating the gastrointestinal (GI) tract was studied using horseradish peroxidase (HRP), a retrograde transport tracer in the cat. The distributions of parasympathetic postganglionic neurons of the heart were studied with acetylcholinesterase(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the relationship between the lateral tegmental field (FTL), a cardioinhibitory area, with other cardioinhibitory areas, i.e., the ambiguus nucleus (NA) and the dorsal motor nucleus of vagus (DMV) and the caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM), a vasopressor inhibitory area. In 55 cats anesthetized with chloralose (40(More)
In 65 cats anesthetized with alpha-chloralose and urethane, the effects of insulin on cardiovascular responses to stimulation of various structures in the brain stem were studied. The threshold dose of insulin injected intravenously that produced systemic hypoglycemia was 5-10 U/kg. Subthreshold hypoglycemic doses of insulin were used(More)
A stimulation of the gigantocellular tegmental field (FTG) in the medulla oblongata often increases systemic arterial blood pressure (SAP) and decreases heart rate (HR). We investigated if the cardioinhibitory/depressor areas, including the nucleus ambiguus (NA), the dorsal motor nucleus of vagus (DMV) and the caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM), underlied(More)
The functional correlation of the depressor caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM) with the two pressor regions, i.e. rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) and dorsomedial medulla (DM), and with another inhibitory region, i.e. the paramedian reticular nucleus (PRN), were studied in cats anesthetized intraperitoneally with chloralose (40 mg/kg) and urethane (400(More)
Chinese J. Physiol 31(2): 79-93, 1988. In cats, the resting systemic arterial blood pressure (SAP) which rises on electrical stimulation of the dorsal medulla (DM), ventrolateral medulla (VLM) and paramedian reticular nucleus (PRN) under anesthesia with 2% halothane in oxygen were compared with those 30 min after termination of the inhalation (with(More)
