Amino Acid Sequence

Cys-Tyr-Ile-Gln-Asn-Cys-Pro-Arg-Gly-NH2 [Disulfide Bridge: 1-6]

Preparation Note

[Arg8]-Vasotocin acetate salt dissolves in water at 20 mg/ml to yield a clear, colorless solution.

Application

[Arg8]-Vasotocin acetate salt was used as a test compound for studying whether it can regulate the interspecific cooperative behaviour in fish. The product was used for inducing parturition in viviparous females to study reproduction in oviparous and viviparous lizard females of species Zootoca vivipara.

Biochem/physiol Actions

[Arg8]-Vasotocin (AVT) is a neurohypophyseal peptide of the vasopressin/oxytocin hormone family that mediates social behaviors, coregulates the adrenocortical stress response as well as maintains water balance. AVT stimulates neurones in the mammalian central nervous system.
