The aortic depressor nerve (ADN) on the left side was identified in the cervical region using a dissecting microscope.
However, SOD1 overexpression enhanced baroreceptor depressor nerve function in response to AP elevation.
Noticeably, the aortic depressor nerve function is increased in hSOD1 mice.
Thus, careful studies of other neural components in the baroreflex arc in addition to aortic depressor nerves are critically important to fully understand the effects of hSOD overexpression on the whole baroreflex circuitry.
