Previous functional studies indicated that an angiotensin type 2 (AT2) receptor subtype may participate in the regulation of vasopressin release by angiotensin II (AngII). In the present study, AT2 receptor-directed antiserum immunohistochemically detected AT2 receptors within the hypothalamic paraventricular (PVN) and the supraoptic nuclei (SON) of the rat brain, more specifically, in identified vasopressinergic neurons. Considering the lack of AT2 binding in the PVN and the SON using receptor… CONTINUE READING
