Background K(+) channels of the TASK family are believed to participate in sensory transduction by chemoreceptor (glomus) cells of the carotid body (CB). However, studies on the systemic CB-mediated ventilatory response to hypoxia and hypercapnia in TASK1- and/or TASK3-deficient mice have yielded conflicting results. We have characterized the glomus cell(More)
Discovery of haemoglobin A expression outside of the erythroid cell lineage suggests that oxygen transport is the main, but not the unique, function of adult haemoglobin chains in mammals. The contribution of haemoglobin A to antioxidant defences has been proposed in the territories where it is expressed. Catecholaminergic cells rely on an active oxidative(More)
