Immunohistochemical detection of the protein, Fos, was used to identify neurons in the brain activated following a volume load. The plasma expanders, Haemaccel and 6% dextran, were infused intravenously in conscious rabbits for 60 min. Compared to control animals both stimuli significantly increased right atrial pressure but had no effect on blood pressure.(More)
We examined the origins and functional evolution of the Shaker and KCNQ families of voltage-gated K(+) channels to better understand how neuronal excitability evolved. In bilaterians, the Shaker family consists of four functionally distinct gene families (Shaker, Shab, Shal, and Shaw) that share a subunit structure consisting of a voltage-gated K(+) channel(More)
