Vasopressin-induced pressor responses in rats to bilateral electrolytic lesioning of the caudal portion of the nucleus tractus solitarii.

Abstract

Bilateral electrolytic lesioning of the nucleus tractus solitarii elicited a pressor response in rats with spinal transection. This response was abolished by a vasopressin pressor antagonist and plasma vasopressin was increased during the response. This evidence suggests that the nucleus tractus solitarii is involved in inhibiting vasopressin release and… (More)
