Carbon monoxide (CO) has been identified as an endogenous biological messenger in the brain. Heme oxygenase catalyzes the metabolism of heme to biliverdin and CO. Recent studies have demonstrated that CO is involved in central cardiovascular regulation and modulates the baroreflex in the nucleus tractus solitarii of rats. The purpose of the present study(More)
Carbon monoxide has been shown to act as a neurotransmitter and neuronal messenger in the brain. Heme oxygenase catalyzes the conversion of heme to carbon monoxide and biliverdin. We have recently reported that carbon monoxide was involved in central cardiovascular regulation. Carbon monoxide modulated the baroreflex and may affect glutamatergic(More)
