  • We investigated the role of glutamatergic synapses in the expression of Fos protein at the nucleus tractus solitarii following baroreceptor activation in rats anaesthetized with pentobarbital sodium. Microinjection of L-glutamate (1 nmol) bilaterally into the nucleus tractus solitarii elicited significant hypotension and bradycardia. There was a concurrent increase, as determined immunohistochemically, in the expression of Fos protein at the commissural, medial and dorsomedial subnuclei of the… CONTINUE READING
