Hypoxia- and normoxia-induced reversibility of autonomic control in Andean guinea pig heart.


We herein describe the regulation of cardiac receptors in a typical high-altitude native animal. Heart rate response to isoproterenol (HRIso) (beats.min-1.mg Iso.kg-1) and atropine, the density of beta-adrenergic (beta AR) and muscarinic (M2) receptors, and the ventricular content of norepinephrine (NE) and dopamine (DA) were studied in guinea pigs (Cavia… (More)
