Explorer Oxytocinase in the Female Rat Hypothalamus : a Novel Mechanism Controlling Oxytocin Neurons During Lactation

TLDR
P-LAP regulates auto-excitatory oxytocin actions during the suckling-induced milk-ejection reflex and is thought to be important for preventing premature uterine contractions, thereby helping to maintain normal pregnancy to term.

Effect of Prolyl Endopeptidase Inhibition on Arginine‐Vasopressin and Thyrotrophin‐Releasing Hormone Catabolism in the Rat Brain

TLDR
The present data suggest that the promnesic and antiamnesic effects of S 17092 can be accounted for, at least in part, by blockage of AVP and TRH degradation by PEP.

Oxytocinase in the Female Rat Hypothalamus: A Novel Mechanism Controlling Oxytocin Neurones During Lactation

TLDR
It is concluded that hypothalamic P‐LAP regulates auto‐excitatory oxytocin actions during the suckling‐induced milk‐ejection reflex, and the prevention of its action mimics central Oxytocin administration.

Barrel rotation induced by vasopressin and related peptides in rats

Evidence supporting a role for endogenous vasopressin in natural suppression of fever in the sheep.

TLDR
AVP plasma levels correlated negatively with fever magnitude following premature birth induced by dexamethasone, and the amounts of AVP in perfusates from the septal region correlated positively with changes in body temperature.

Centrally acting peptides and tolerance to ethanol.

TLDR
These neuropeptides, which have been localized to many areas of brain, may serve as endogenous modulators of various parameters related to ethanol consumption, and may represent CNS adaptive processes which are subserved by different mechanisms, or are differentially sensitive to particular peptides.

Neurohypophyseal principles and memory.

TLDR
Results indicate that vasopressin modulates memory processes by modulation of neurotransmission in distinct catecholamine systems.
