The aims of this study were: first, to investigate the effects of anaesthesia on phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase (p-ERK)1/2-immunoreactivity (-ir) in the brainstem; second, to choose the best anaesthetic for p-ERK1/2 studies; and third, to determine the effect of short-term hypotension on p-ERK1/2-ir in the brainstem. Rats were(More)
The effects of hyperoxic hypercapnia (5, 10 or 15% CO2 in O2) on splanchnic sympathetic nerve activity (sSNA) and sympathetic reflexes such as the somato-sympathetic reflex or baroreflex were studied in urethane anaesthetised, paralysed, artificially ventilated and vagotomized Sprague-Dawley rats. Hypercapnia caused a small increase in mean arterial blood(More)
