The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis adapts to periods of chronic or repeated stress. We have now investigated whether there is any differential effect of repeated immobilization stress on CRH and arginine vasopressin (AVP) gene transcription in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN), using probes for both intronic and exonic sequences of the AVP… CONTINUE READING
