Arginine vasopressin (AVP), which has been shown to have a marked contractant effect on human penile erectile tissues, particularly the corpus spongiosum (CS), was demonstrated to occur in these tissues. Out of nine CS samples, eight contained vasopressin-like immunoreactivity in concentrations ranging from 3.5 to 107.2 fmol./gm. wet weight. These amounts suggest that the hormone is taken up and/or synthesized locally. The effects of four different vasopressin antagonists were characterized on… CONTINUE READING
