Identification of phrenic afferents in the dorsal columns: a fluorescent double-labeling study in the cat.

Abstract

In this study in the cat, the tracer combination of the anterogradely transported Fast Blue and the retrogradely transported Nuclear Yellow was used to label dorsal root ganglion cells related to phrenic afferents running up through the ipsilateral dorsal column. These afferents are few; some of them leave the dorsal column near their segment of entry. Their localization in the dorsal column suggests that they are related to tendon and muscle receptors, which confirms previous electrophysiological studies.
