  • Abstract Oxytocin-like activity and vasopressin-like activity have been identified and measured by radioimmunoassay in extracts from human ovaries. The authenticity of the oxytocin was confirmed by its behaviour on high-performance liquid chromatography. The yields of both hormones were too great to be explained by known circulating levels in non-pregnant women. This suggests that these hormones are either taken up by the ovary from a neurohypophysial source or else manufactured locally, and… CONTINUE READING
