In this sense, adult stem cells from the carotid body
taken from the neural crest (CBSCs) are capable of experiencing endothelial differentiation, as well as their already described role in neurogenesis.
In the population with surgically removed carotid body
in order to treat pulmonary diseases, which is characterized by chronic absence of peripheral chemoreceptors, hypoxic ventilatory response maintenance is upregulated by non carotid body

Normally, the carotid body
acts to regulate the amount of oxygen and carbon-dioxide in the blood.

A 47 years old woman was found to have a carotid body
tumor in an angiographic study (Figure 2a).
Alternatively, carotid body
tumors arise medially at the bifurcations of the common carotid artery; these tumors are intimately attached to the origins of the occipital and ascending pharyngeal arteries (HUBBEN et al.
tumors are composed by two cells types: the type I cells are the chief or paraganglionic cells; the type II cells are the sustentacular cells.
AN has also been implicated in autonomic functions such as respiratory processing mediated by carotid body
receptor (Banks and Harris 1988), suggesting that apart from the PVN, the AN also may be involved in stress-induced autonomic alterations.
The appearance was consistent with a glomus jugulare tumor with the differential diagnosis including other paragangliomas such as carotid body
or intravagal tumor, schwannoma, meningioma, metastasis, and much less likely entities such as parotid tumor or epidermoid cyst.
More carotid body
cells survived in the recent experiment on monkeys, Lopez-Barneo says.
