Vasopressin and oxytocin regulation of cyclic AMP accumulation in rat hypothalamo-neurohypophysial explants in vitro.


Addition of vasopressin to hypothalamo-neurohypophysial explants in vitro increased cyclic AMP accumulation whereas exogenous oxytocin decreased cyclic AMP. An opposite response pattern was observed in the neural lobe of the pituitary where vasopressin decreased and oxytocin increased cyclic AMP accumulation. Forskolin elicited a 3-fold greater increase in… (More)
