Lectin Histochemistry on Carotid Body Tissue in Normoxic and Long-Term Hypoxic Rats
Still, conclusive evidence is lacking whether or not the carotid body type-I cells are a structurally and functionally homogenous group of cells or constitute more than one population of cells. Similarly, little is known about altered characteristics of the carotid body elements in hypoxia. To address these questions we have applied lectin histochemistry as a tool in our attempts to differentiate between the tissue elements in the carotid body.
