The osmolality and concentrations of Na, K, Cl and the hormones arginine vasotocin (AVT), prolactin, aldosterone and corticosterone were measured in plasma as functions of time in relation to oviposition, changing NaCl content of the diet, and feeding-inanition. AVT was significantly increased immediately after oviposition (but not during the hour before) with a calculated average value of 38.0 +/- 4.1 pg/ml at oviposition. A moderate increase in concentrations of prolactin and corticosterone… CONTINUE READING
