GABA is expressed in carotid body (CB) chemoreceptor type I cells and has previously been reported to modulate sensory transmission via presynaptic GABA(B) receptors. Because low doses of clinically important GABA(A) receptor (GABA(A)R) agonists, e.g. benzodiazepines, have been reported to depress afferent CB responses to hypoxia, we investigated the potential contribution of GABA(A)R in co-cultures of rat type I cells and sensory petrosal neurones (PNs). During gramicidin perforated-patch… CONTINUE READING
