... 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...

... rise to air breathing in vertebrates. The neural substrate of this behaviour, however, is not defined. 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...

.... We examined the effects of acclimation to hypoxia (75 mmHg) on the number of serotonergic NECs of the gill filaments at 7 and 10 d.p.f. for three reasons: (1) only these cells have been shown to possess chemoreceptor properties in the gill ( Jonz et al., 2004 ; Qin et al., 2010 ); (2) NECs appear...

...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...

... conclusion is that the ribbed hairs are chemoreceptors, not spigots. 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...

Transcripts made from a zebrafish cDNA library were expressed in a heterologous system, Xenopus laevis oocytes, and tested for chemoreceptor activation via electrophysiology, using...

...L. Sundin; J. Turesson; E. W. Taylor SUMMARY Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter of chemoreceptor and baroreceptor afferent pathways in mammals and therefore plays a central role in the development of cardiorespiratory reflexes. In fish, the gills are the major sites of these receptors...

Superfusion of the exposed brain of decerebrate, spinalectomized fish did not reveal the presence of central chemoreceptors responsive to hyperoxic, hypoxic, hypercarbic,acidic or alkaline solutions...
