Impairment of baroreflex control of heart rate and structural changes of cardiac ganglia in conscious streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic mice.

Baroreflex control of heart rate (HR) is impaired in human diabetes mellitus and in large experimental models. However, baroreflex impairment in diabetic mouse models and diabetes-induced remodeling of baroreflex circuitry are not well studied. We examined the impairment of baroreflex control of heart rate (HR) and assessed structural remodeling of cardiac… CONTINUE READING
