[3H]arginine-vasopressin binding sites in the CNS of the golden hamster.

Tritiated arginine8-vasopressin [( 3H]AVP) was used to identify specific binding sites for this neuropeptide in the CNS of the golden hamster. [3H]AVP binding sites were concentrated in the dorsal, ventral and lateral septum, bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST), central amygdala, hippocampus, dorsal thalamic nuclei, anterior cingulate gyrus and… CONTINUE READING
