Recent studies revealed that vasopressinergic neurons have a high content of cys-leukotriene C(4) (LTC(4)) synthase, a critical enzyme in cys-leukotriene synthesis that may play a role in regulating vasopressin secretion. This study investigates the role of this enzyme in arginine vasopressin (AVP) release during experimentally induced sepsis. Male Wistar(More)
Previous studies revealed the presence of LTC(4) synthase in paraventricular vasopressinergic neurons, suggesting a role for leukotrienes (LTs) in certain neuroendocrine system functions. Our aim was to study the effect of an inhibitor of LT synthesis in the release of arginine vasopressin (AVP) following an osmotic stimulus in rats. Male Wistar rats(More)
