Fecal matter transplant from Ace2 overexpressing mice counteracts chronic hypoxia-induced pulmonary hypertension

Recent evidence suggests pulmonary hypertension (PH), a disease of the pulmonary vasculature actually has multiorgan pathophysiology and perhaps etiology. Herein, we demonstrated that fecal matter transplantation from angiotensin-converting enzyme 2…

Oxytocin and cardiometabolic interoception: Knowing oneself affects ingestive and social behaviors

Maintaining homeostasis while navigating one’s environment involves accurately assessing and interacting with external stimuli while remaining consciously in tune with internal signals such as hunger and thirst. Both atypical social…

A Novel Organ-Specific Approach to Selectively Target Sensory Afferents Innervating the Aortic Arch

The brain maintains cardiovascular homeostasis, in part, via the arterial baroreflex which senses changes in blood pressure (BP) at the level of the aortic arch. Sensory afferents innervating the aortic…

Identification and three-dimensional reconstruction of oxytocin receptor expressing astrocytes in the rat and mouse brain

Here, we present a step-by-step protocol for three-dimensional reconstruction of astrocyte morphology, applied to the central amygdala oxytocin receptor-expressing astrocytes. This includes RNAse-free perfusion, combination of RNAscope and immunohistochemistry, and…
