Receptors for the calcium-regulating glycoprotein hormone stanniocalcin-1 (STC-1) have been found within the CNS and whether these receptors exist within the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS), and their possible role in the regulation of arterial pressure (AP) is unknown. Experiments were done in the rat to: (1) map the distribution of STC-1 receptors throughout NTS using in situ ligand binding that uses a stanniocalcin-alkaline phosphatase (STC-AP) fusion protein; (2) determine whether… CONTINUE READING
