Agonist and hypertonic saline-induced trafficking of the NK3-receptors on vasopressin neurons within the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus.


The neurokinin 3 receptor (NK3R) is colocalized with vasopressinergic neurons within the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and intraventricular injections of NK3R agonists stimulate vasopressin (VP) release. Our objectives were to test the hypotheses that intraventricular injections of the selective NK3R agonist, succinyl-[Asp6, N-Me-Phe8… (More)
