Recently developed radioimmunoassay methods were utilized to quantitatively characterize secretion of the avian antidiuretic hormone [arginine vasotocin (AVT)] by the hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS) of the conscious domestic fowl. The functional characteristics of the osmoreceptor-HNS were evaluated during independent experimental manipulations of extracellular osmolality or volume. Simultaneous measurements of plasma AVT (PAVT) and either plasma osmolality (Posm) or blood volume (BV… CONTINUE READING
