The relationship between vasopressin (VP) receptor levels in the anterior pituitary and VP-stimulated ACTH release in vitro was studied in rats subjected to various chronic stress paradigms. The stress models used were water deprivation for 60 h and administration of 2% NaCl in the drinking water (both of which are associated with decreased pituitary ACTH responsiveness), and repeated i.p. hypertonic saline injections or repeated daily immobilization for 14 days (associated with increased ACTH… CONTINUE READING
