Effects of modulators of AMP-activated protein kinase on TASK-1/3 and intracellular Ca(2+) concentration in rat carotid body
The glomic artery supply of carotid body
tumors and implications for embolization.
Chronic intermittent hypoxia induces local inflammation of the rat carotid body
via functional upregulation of proinflammatory cytokine pathways," Histochemistry & Cell Biology, vol.
The researchers, who conducted the study of rats, said that despite its small size the carotid body
has the highest blood flow of any organ in the body.
tumors (CBTs), also known as paragangliomas, are among the tumors of neuroectodermal origin.
1) overall morbidity in surgical management of carotid body
tumor is approximately 3.
Immunohistochemical characteristics of canine aortic and carotid body
Around 80% of paragangliomas are carotid body
or jugulotympanic glomus tumors.
For example, paragangliomas of the adrenal medulla are pheochromocytomas, and paragangliomas of the carotid bifurcation are carotid body
Thus, the apparent manufacture of growth factors by carotid body
cells is "the diamond in the rough in this study," he says.
