Vasopressin acting at V1-type receptors produces membrane depolarization in neonatal rat spinal lateral column neurons.


Vasopressin-immunoreactive fibers have been visualized in the area of spinal lateral horn cells, including spinal sympathetic preganglionic neurons. The presence and nature of vasopressin receptors on neurons in this area were addressed using whole-cell patch-clamp techniques in transverse spinal cord slice preparations from neonatal rat.
