The vasopressin gene is expressed prior to regulation in the supraoptic nuclei of fetal rats.

Abstract

The development of the regulation of vasopressin (prepropressophysin) mRNA in the supraoptic nuclei (SON) of rats was studied using quantitative in situ hybridization. On day 21 of gestation, vasopressin mRNA levels in the SON were increased by osmotic stimulation, with significant positive correlation between vasopressin mRNA levels and plasma osmolality… (More)
