Evidence accumulated recently suggests that protein tyrosine phosphorylation may play an important role in regulating neuronal functions. In the present study, we investigated if the state of protein tyrosine phosphorylation in the brainstem regulates baroreflex sensitivity. Anti-phosphotyrosine immunoblots of brainstem tissue revealed that several phosphotyrosine-containing proteins were present in the brainstem and their level of tyrosine phosphorylation was decreased by treatment of the… CONTINUE READING
