I assessed the role of the chemoreceptors (aortic bodies) supplied by the coronary arteries in the hypertensive response induced by left atrial injection of (200 microgram serotonin) in adult anesthetized dogs. I compared the pressor response induced by serotonin during normal coronary circulation with that during exclusion of the central coronary segments from which the coronary blood supply to the aortic bodies arises. Exclusion of the central segments reduced the pressor response… CONTINUE READING
