Specific binding sites for vasotocin (VT) were detected in brain and pituitary of a teleost fish, the sea bass, after in vitro incubation of tissue sections with [3H]arginine-vasopressin (AVP) and light microscopic autoradiography. Conditions for the binding assay were optimized and as a result the binding was saturable and specific. In the brain [3H]AVP binding was found to occur in the pars lateralis and the pars ventralis of the ventral telencephalon, in the pars centralis of the dorsal… CONTINUE READING
