Effects of arginine vasopressin in the heart are mediated by specific intravascular endothelial receptors.

Abstract

Arginine vasopressin induces vascular, inotropic and arrhythmogenic effects in the heart. Existing evidence, obtained indirectly, suggests that these effects occur through paracrine endothelial mechanisms. To demonstrate this, vasopressin was confined to the intravascular space by covalent coupling to high molecular weight (2x10(6) Da, vasopresin-dextran… (More)
