... of this clade, relative to other elongate vertebrates. However, these behaviors may have simultaneously hindered lung ventilation such that early snakes may have had to circumvent these mechanical constraints before those behaviors could evolve. Here, we demonstrate that Boa constrictor can modulate which...

...Michael T. Burton; Joseph M. Santin ABSTRACT Chemoreceptors that detect O 2 and CO 2 /pH regulate ventilation. However, recent work shows that lactate ions activate arterial chemoreceptors independent of pH to stimulate breathing. Although lactate rises in the central nervous system (CNS) during...

...Milica Mandic; Yihang K. Pan; Kathleen M. Gilmour; Steve F. Perry ABSTRACT Fish increase ventilation during hypoxia, a reflex termed the hypoxic ventilatory response (HVR). The HVR is an effective mechanism to increase O 2 uptake, but at a high metabolic cost. Therefore, when hypoxia becomes severe...
