Vasopressin receptor expression and mutation analysis in corticotropin-secreting tumors.

Abstract

Vasopressin is an important regulator of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis activation, primarily acting through the V3 receptor (V3R). Many patients with ACTH-secreting pituitary adenomas, but not normal individuals, respond to desmopressin, a relatively V2-specific vasopressin agonist, with increased ACTH and cortisol levels. We have searched for… (More)
