Stress 2021 Jul 14:1-27. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Animal Biosciences, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, N1G 2W1, Canada.

Individual variation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis response to stress could contribute to variable stress resiliency of livestock. During stress events, the innate immune system can also become activated and work in concert with the neuroendocrine system to restore homeostasis, while minimizing tissue damage. The purpose of this study was to assess immune function in variable stress-responding sheep in response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) endotoxin immune-challenge. Read More

Reactive oxygen species play a modulatory role in the hyperventilatory response to poikilocapnic hyperoxia in humans.

J Physiol 2021 Jul 10. Epub 2021 Jul 10.

Laboratory of Exercise Sciences, Fluminense Federal University, Niterói, Brazil.

Key Points: The proposed mechanism for the increased ventilation in response to hyperoxia includes a reduced brain CO -[H ] washout-induced central chemoreceptor stimulation that results from a decrease in cerebral perfusion and the weakening of the CO affinity for haemoglobin. Nonetheless, hyperoxia also results in excessive brain reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation/accumulation, which hypothetically increases central respiratory drive and causes hyperventilation. We then quantified ventilation, cerebral perfusion/metabolism, arterial/internal jugular vein blood gases, oxidant/antioxidant biomarkers in response to hyperoxia during intravenous infusion of saline or ascorbic acid (AA) to determine whether excessive ROS production/accumulation contributes to the hyperoxia-induced hyperventilation in humans.
