Endogenous antidiuretic hormone in most mammalian species. It is released into the blood from nerve terminals in the posterior pituitary and median eminence. Arg8-vasopressin is also a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It is implicated in a variety of physiological processes including diuresis, vasoregulation, and memory. Regulates water balance by antidiuretic action; contracts arterioles (vasopressor action).
