Vasopressin, a hypothalamic hormone, acts on its target tissues via three different G protein coupled receptors. The vasopressin V1a and V1b receptors, associated to Gq protein and phospholipase C, are responsible for vasoconstriction and regulation of the corticotroph axis respectively. The V2 vasopressin receptor is coupled to Gs protein and adenylyl… CONTINUE READING
