Frog glomerular vasotocin receptors resemble mammalian V1b receptors.


Vasotocin receptors were investigated in glomeruli and nephron segments microdissected from collagenase-treated kidneys of Rana ridibunda, using [d(CH2)5Tyr(Me)2,Thr4,Orn8,125I-Tyr-NH2(9)]vasotocin (125I-OVTA) as a radioligand. Specific 125I-OVTA binding sites were found only in glomeruli and not in all tubule segments tested. Glomerular receptors exhibited… (More)
