Gene context of Baroreflex

  • These observations suggest an important role for ERalpha subtype in the central modulation of baroreflex responses [29].
  • Baseline cardiovascular parameters, systolic and diastolic function at different preloads, and baroreflex sensitivity were similar in FAAH-/- and FAAH+/+ mice [30].
  • We conclude from these experiments that AVP and oxytocin both augment baroreflex sensitivity, although the receptor type(s) responsible are not clear [31].
  • Baroreflex sensitivity and variants of the renin angiotensin system genes [32].
  • We tested the hypothesis that variants in the gene (KCNMB1) coding for the BK beta1 subunit are associated with baroreflex function [33].
