mRNA encoding the vasopressin-neurophysin precursor was quantitated in individual hypothalamic nuclei of rats by a liquid hybridization assay. Drinking of 2% saline for 14 days, a treatment that increased the plasma vasopressin concentration 9-fold, resulted in a 5- and 2-fold increase in mRNA levels in the supraoptic and paraventricular nucleus, respectively. This osmotic stimulus had no effect on vasopressin-neurophysin mRNA content of the suprachiasmatic nucleus. This dissociation in… CONTINUE READING
