Abstract

Arterial chemoreceptors in the carotid body are central to the chemical control of breathing in the chemotransduction of physiological stimuli in the arterial blood for eliciting the chemoreflex, which mediates the respiratory, cardiovascular and autonomic responses to hypoxia, hypercapnia and acidosis. Recent evidence suggests that signaling molecules… (More)
