Parasympathetic dysfunction is associated with baroreflex and chemoreflex impairment in streptozotocin-induced diabetes in rats.


This study explored physiological mechanisms of diabetic dysfunction in baroreceptors and chemoreceptors-mediated hemodynamic responses, and cholinergic neurotransmission in 30-day diabetic rats (n = 14) and controls (n = 14). Basal hemodynamic data and vagal response to electrical stimulation and methacholine injection were also evaluated. Muscarinic… (More)
