Mechanosensitive ion channels in blood pressure-sensing baroreceptor neurons.

Abstract

Baroreceptors (BRs) are mechanosensitive nerve endings in carotid sinuses and aortic arch that function as arterial blood pressure (BP) sensors. Changes in BR activity evoke reflex circulatory adjustments that reduce BP variability and its adverse consequences. BR activation during increases in BP involves three processes: (1) vascular distension and… (More)
