Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE aorta; the PULMONARY arteries; and the CORONARY arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; carbon dioxide; and oxygen concentrations in the blood and participate in the control of respiration. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the para-aortic bodies in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
