Control of release of vasopressin by neuroendocrine reflexes.
The neurones in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei (SON and PVN) which secrete vasopressin are separate from those which secrete oxytocin and are distributed in different parts of the nuclei.Expand

Brattleboro rat adrenal contains vasopressin
Arginine-vasopressin (AVP) is a neurohypophysial nonapeptide with antidiuretic activity involved in the control of blood volume and plasma osmolality1. Recently, by immunological methods, theExpand

Blood levels of oxytocin and vasopressin during suckling in the rabbit and the problem of their independent release
1. Oxytocin and vasopressin were assayed in samples of blood collected from conscious rabbits during suckling. The milk yields were determined from the weight gain of the litters.

The hypothalamic neurosecretory pathways for the release of oxytocin and vasopressin in the cat
1. The neurones of the supraoptic nucleus (SON) and paraventricular nucleus (PVN) were stimulated electrically in lactating cats under chloralose anaesthesia. Milk‐ejection responses were used toExpand

  • 1 December 1957
The actions of nicotine, hexamethonium, and ethanol on the hypothalamo-hypophysial system have been investigated in the rat. The antidiuretic action of nicotine was not inhibited by ethanol, nor byExpand

Release of vasopressin and oxytocin by excitatory amino acid agonists and the effect of antagonists on release by muscarine and hypertonic saline, in the rat in vivo
1 It has been claimed that glutamate is the dominant excitatory neurotransmitter in neuroendocrine regulation. The evidence is derived mainly from in vitro experiments. 2 We have investigated in vivoExpand

RELEASE OF VASOPRESSIN BY ENKEPHALIN
Leu‐enkephalin, its stable analogue [D‐Ala2‐D‐Leu5]‐enkephalin and the C‐fragment of lipotropin (β endorphin) injected intravenously in the rat produced anti‐diuretic responses which were inhibitedExpand

The actions of bradykinin, angiotensin, oxytocin, vasopressin and substance P have been examined both on isolated smooth muscle preparations and in vivo. It was found that the isolated rat uterus andExpand

Hypothalamic pathways for independent release of vasopressin and oxytocin
By means of a simple method for extraction of blood samples, reliable recoveries of vasopressin and oxytocin were obtained. This method was used in anaesthetized cats for estimation of theseExpand
