... of these bonds. Here, we discuss the evidence from voles that aspects of adolescent and adult social behavior are shaped by early experience, including changes to sensory systems and connections, neuropeptide systems such as oxytocin and vasopressin, and alterations in stress responses. We will compare...

... with precursors of vasopressin/oxytocin-like neuropeptides. Thus, the NGFFFamide precursor is the first neurophysin-containing neuropeptide precursor to be discovered that does not contain a vasopressin/oxytocin-like peptide. However, it remains to be determined whether neurophysin acts as a carrier protein...

... to be influenced by the availability of Na + . The antidiuretic role of vasopressin remains inconclusive in marine mammals, while the natriuretic function of atrial natriuretic peptide has yet to be examined. Ideas on the direction of future studies are presented. *Present address: A316 Earth and Marine...

.... The vertebrate peptide hormones 8-arginine-vasopressin and 8-lysine-vasopressin both produced an inhibition of I amil comparable with that caused by angiotensin II amide. However, 8-lysine-vasopressin reduced I sc, whereas 8-arginine-vasopressin induced a moderate increase in I sc . The neurotransmitter dopamine...

...C. Tomas Lundquist; Richard A. Baines; Jonathan P. Bacon ABSTRACT The pair of vasopressin-like immunoreactive (VPLI) neurones of the locust Locusta migratoria have cell bodies in the suboesophageal ganglion and extensive arborization throughout the central nervous sytem. The activity of the VPLI...

...Aicha Raji; Jean J. Nordmann ABSTRACT In many mammals, severe dehydration is known to cause exhaustion of the vasopressin content of the neural lobe. Here, we have examined the physiological state of the neurohypophysis of the jerboa Jaculus orientalis , a rodent inhabitant of a semi-desert climate...

... release provoked by certain stressors arises from a synergistic interaction between two hypothalamic hormones: corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH) and a modulator such as vasopressin (AVP). The pituitary ACTH cell has been used to unravel the intracellular messenger equivalents of an external signal...
