In vitro studies on single microdissected segments have been extensively used during the 20 past years to localize V1 and V2 vasopressin receptors within the mammalian kidney, and define their role in the control of water balance. Based on vasopressin-dependent adenylate cyclase activity measurements and quantitative RT-PCR studies, it is now clear that V2 receptors are present along the whole collecting duct from cortex to papilla, and, in most species, in the ascending limb of Henle's loop… CONTINUE READING
