... kg −1 ) in alligators. Doxapram is used clinically to alleviate ventilatory depression in response to anaesthesia and acts primarily on the peripheral oxygen-sensitive chemoreceptors. Using this approach, we investigated the hypothesis that pulmonary ventilation is relatively modest in comparison...

... of endogenous NO production using l -NAME suppressed the hypoventilatory response to hyperoxia, supporting an inhibitory role of NO in adult zebrafish. Neuroepithelial cells (NECs), the putative oxygen chemoreceptors of fish, contain neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS). In zebrafish larvae at 4 days post...

..., and by morphological changes at the chemoreceptor level. Mangrove rivulus ( Kryptolebias marmoratus ) were exposed to 1 week of normocapnic control water (pH 8), air, hypercapnia (5% CO 2 , pH 6.8) or isocapnic acidosis (pH 6.8). We found that the density of CO 2 /H + chemoreceptive neuroepithelial cells (NECs...

We characterized ASR in developing and adult zebrafish ( Danio rerio ) to ascertain a potential role for peripheral chemoreceptors in initiation or modulation of this response. Adult zebrafish exposed...

...Maria L. Coccimiglio; Michael G. Jonz SUMMARY In teleost fish, O 2 chemoreceptors of the gills (neuroepithelial cells or NECs) initiate cardiorespiratory reflexes during hypoxia. In developing zebrafish, hyperventilatory and behavioural responses to hypoxia are observed before development of gill...

Observations of live tarantulas clinging inverted to glass coverslips confirmed that some substance is produced by the ribbed hairs, but it remains unclear whether this secretion is actually silk. In any case, the thousands of adhesive...

... in atropinized fish; means ± S.E.M.). Thus, the results of the present study reveal the presence of gill CO 2 chemoreceptors in dogfish that are linked to numerous cardiorespiratory reflexes. In addition, because all cardiorespiratory responses to hypercarbia were abolished or attenuated by atropine, the CO 2...
