Liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy is a plastic process during which the mechanisms that coordinate liver mass restoration compensate one another through a complex regulatory network of cytokines, growth factors, and hormones. Vasopressin, an agonist that triggers highly organized Ca2+ signals in the liver, may be one of these factors, although little in vivo evidence is available in support of this hypothesis. We provide evidence that hypothalamic vasopressin secretion is stimulated… CONTINUE READING
