★Assistant Professor Fujii and Professor Nishiyasu et al. published a paper assessing relationship between heat loss responses and ATP

Research results by Assistant Professor Naoto Fujii and Professor Takeshi Nishiyasu have been published in the international journal Clinical Physiology and Functional Imaging.


Researchers evaluated the hypothesis that whole-body heating would increase skin interstitial fluid ATP, and this response would be associated with an increase in cutaneous vasodilation and sweating. We showed that passive heating increases ATP in blood and possibly skin interstitial fluid, with the latter potentially blunting cutaneous vasodilation. However, ATP does not appear to modulate sweating.
