Arginine vasopressin secretion with mutants of wild-type and Brattleboro rats AVP gene.

Abstract

Defects in peptide processing are associated with several disorders, including central diabetes insipidus (CDI). In the Brattleboro (BB) rat with CDI, the mRNA and protein of arginine vasopressin (AVP) are present in the hypothalamus, but no circulating AVP is detectable, thus suggesting a processing defect. The present study examined AVP secretion in… (More)
