The development and evaluation of a radioimmunoassay for oxytocin is described. High titre antisera were raised to oxytocin coupled to thyroglobulin and tested for specificity with a number of oxytocin analogues and fragments. Two antisera showing high specificity were used to assay plasma directly without extraction. The maximum sensitivity was 0.5pg per… CONTINUE READING
