The aim of this study was to determine whether Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide at the doses of 25, 50 and 100 microM influences arginine-vasopressin (AVP) secretion in young rat suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) neurons. Lipopolysaccharide administered in the medium for 3 h increased significantly the arginine-vasopressin release lasting up to 6 h after treatment. These results provide the first evidence that lipopolysaccharide influences AVP secretion in SCN neurons. Moreover, these findings… CONTINUE READING
