Vasopressin messenger ribonucleic acid regulation via the protein kinase A pathway.


Activation of vasopressin (VP) gene expression in vivo by osmotic stimuli results in an increase in both messenger RNA (mRNA) content and polyadenylate [poly(A)] tail length. VP gene transcription in vitro is stimulated by protein kinase A (PKA) activation. To examine the role of PKA in the regulation of VP mRNA poly(A) metabolism, constructs of the rat VP… (More)
