      Central congenital hypoventilation syndrome is caused by mutations of the gene that encodes the transcription factor Phox2b. the syndrome is characterized by a severe form of sleep apnea attributed to greatly compromised ...

    • Galanin Is a Selective Marker of the Retrotrapezoid Nucleus in Rats 

      Stornetta, Ruth L.; Spirovski, Darko; Moreira, Thiago S. [UNIFESP]; Takakura, Ana C. [UNIFESP]; West, Gavin H.; Gwilt, Justin M.; Pilowsky, Paul M.; Guyenet, Patrice G. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009-01-20)
