The control of adrenal functions by locally secreted neuropeptides or neurotransmitters is of great physiological importance. Vasopressin (VP) is one of these autocrine/paracrine regulators. We demonstrated by RT-PCR and perifusion experiments that rat and human adrenal medulla expressed and released vasopressin under basal conditions and under stimulation by acetylcholine. Intra-adrenal concentrations of VP may be sufficient to activate adrenal VP receptors. In the cortex, only the V1a… CONTINUE READING
