The hypothalamic component consists of corticotropin-releasing hormone and arginine vasopressin, with a questionable contribution of the latter. Vasopressin was more important in the regulation of the adrenocorticotropin secretion in the perinatal vasopressin-deficient Brattleboro rats than in adulthood, where its role depended on the nature of the… CONTINUE READING
