Chemoreceptor neurons innervating the rat carotid body were used as a model system to define target regulation of visceral sensory development in fetal and newborn animals. In vitro, chemoafferents were selectively supported by coculture with the carotid body or by treatment with trkB ligands [brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotrophin-4… CONTINUE READING
