Increased sympathetic outflow in juvenile rats submitted to chronic intermittent hypoxia correlates with enhanced expiratory activity
Chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) in rats produces changes in the central regulation of cardiovascular and respiratory systems by unknown mechanisms. We hypothesized that CIH (6% O2 for 40 s, everyExpand

Involvement of l‐glutamate and ATP in the neurotransmission of the sympathoexcitatory component of the chemoreflex in the commissural nucleus tractus solitarii of awake rats and in the working
Peripheral chemoreflex activation with potassium cyanide (KCN) in awake rats or in the working heart–brainstem preparation (WHBP) produces: (a) a sympathoexcitatory/pressor response; (b) bradycardia;Expand

Sympathoexcitatory response to peripheral chemoreflex activation is enhanced in juvenile rats exposed to chronic intermittent hypoxia
In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) produces changes in the autonomic and respiratory responses to acute peripheral chemoreflex activation. ToExpand

Vasorelaxation Induced by a New Naphthoquinone-Oxime is Mediated by NO-sGC-cGMP Pathway
It has been established that oximes cause endothelium-independent relaxation in blood vessels. In the present study, the cardiovascular effects of the new oximeExpand

Adipokines, diabetes and atherosclerosis: an inflammatory association
Cardiovascular diseases can be considered the most important cause of death in diabetic population and diabetes can in turn increase the risk of cardiovascular events. Inflammation process isExpand

Angiotensin-II-induced reactive oxygen species along the SFO-PVN-RVLM pathway: implications in neurogenic hypertension.
Neurogenic hypertension has been the subject of extensive research worldwide. This review is based on the premise that some forms of neurogenic hypertension are caused in part by the formation ofExpand

Experimental infection by Toxoplasma gondii using contaminated semen containing different doses of tachyzoites in sheep.
Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by Toxoplasma gondii that affects reproductive performance in small ruminants. Although the T. gondii life cycle is well understood since 1960s, severalExpand

Acute superoxide scavenging restores depressed baroreflex sensitivity in renovascular hypertensive rats
In some pathological conditions such as hypertension, there is an impairment in the autonomic control of blood pressure resulting in changes in baroreflex sensitivity. In the present study we testedExpand

In Vivo Bioluminescence Imaging Reveals Redox-Regulated Activator Protein-1 Activation in Paraventricular Nucleus of Mice With Renovascular Hypertension
Renovascular hypertension in mice is characterized by an elevation in hypothalamic angiotensin II levels. The paraventricular nucleus (PVN) is a major cardioregulatory site implicated in theExpand

Characterization of reproductive disorders in ewes given an intrauterine dose of Toxoplasma gondii tachyzoites during the intrauterine insemination.
The aim of this study was to characterize the reproductive disorders in the acute and chronic phases in ewes experimentally infected with different doses of Toxoplasma gondii during artificialExpand
