Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in America have come close to solving the mystery of not being overwhelmed every time they stand. An individual drops and loses balance when he is due to sudden blood pressure, but the body prevents him from using nerve cells called pressure receptors.
Scientists have found more evidence of how these receptors work, in a move that can help prevent heart attacks or strokes and even heart failure.
Researchers found that the two proteins, PIEZO1 and PIEZO2, were capable of sensing blood pressure and stimulating pressure receptors. Once the mechanism begins, the body is asked to increase the heart rate, bringing more blood to the brain to cope with the deficiency, making sure people do not get fainted when they are, according to the researchers. Professor Ardim Pataputian has discovered these two proteins for the first time in a few years. "The motivation of this study lies in fundamental sciences, but these results can have significant implications for our understanding of human health," Ardim said.
Today, researchers found that those proteins copied from PIEZO showed a greater change in blood pressure in mice. While the results have shown that proteins play a major role in enabling pressure receptors to work. Scientists hope that high blood pressure, which does not respond to pharmacotherapy, will focus on PIEZO proteins.
