In view of the presence of distinct oxytocin (OT) and vasopressin (VP) receptors in the male genital tract (porcine) we have reexamined the receptors for OT and AVP in the classical OT target tissue, female genital tract (rabbit). Neurohypophysial hormone receptors have been investigated in vagina, myometrium, and oviduct using quantitative ligand binding, adenylate cyclase, and contractility studies. Our results clearly indicate the presence of distinct OT and V1 VP receptors in the myometrium… CONTINUE READING
