Amylin mediates brainstem control of heart rate in the diving reflex

Amylin, or islet amyloid polypeptide is a 37-amino acid member of the calcitonin peptide family. Amylin role in the brainstem and its function in regulating heart rates is unknown. The diving reflex is a powerful autonomic reflex, however no neuropeptides have been described to modulate its function. In this thesis study, amylin expression in the brainstem involving pathways between the trigeminal ganglion and the nucleus ambiguus was visualized and characterized using immunohistochemistry. Its functional role...
