The carotid body is the main peripheral oxygen sensor involved in cardio-respiratory control under both normoxic and hypoxic conditions. This review focuses on data from newborn animals related to the involvement of the purinergic system in carotid body function during development. We describe the potential effects mediated by ATP and adenosine receptors on ventilation, chemoreceptor activity and their influence on respiratory instability, such as apnea. The conclusions that appear from this… CONTINUE READING
