Co-localization of putative vasopressin receptors and vasopressinergic neurons in rat hypothalamus

  author={David J. Berlove and Diane T. Piekut},
Vasopressin and oxytocin are synthesized by neurons in the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei of hypothalamus. Dense concentrations of vasopressin binding sites have also been localized in these nuclei. Using a vasopressin anti-idiotypic antiserum, a dual immunocytochemical labeling procedure has been employed to elucidate the distribution of putative vasopressin receptors in anatomical relation to vasopressin and oxytocin immunoreactive cells in rat brain. Putative vasopressin receptors are… CONTINUE READING
