Oxytocins

Oxytocin is a cyclic nonapeptide endocrine hormone that induces uterine contraction during labor, mediates the letting-down of milk in the nursing mother, and promotes maternal behavior. It is structurally similar to vasopressin, and also synthesized in the hypothalamus and secreted from the posterior pituitary, but has a different G-protein linked receptor. When oxytocin is bound to its receptors in the central nervous system, it promotes feelings of trust, bonding, and group cohesion. We offer oxytocin as a lyophilized powder from both natural and synthetic sources, as well as the acetate salt. Both oxytocin antagonists listed are cyclic molecules with disulfide bonds.

O3251 Oxytocin Oxytocin (OXT) and arginine vasopressin hormone plays a vital role in regulation of water excretion, parturition and lactation. OXT has been implicated in hydromineral homeostasis and vascular and cardiac relaxation. Oxytocin might function as an effective therapeutic for psychiatric diseases, including depression, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders and autism. OXT has a potential as a marker of autism severity. OXT is an anorexigenic neuropeptide, which is implicated in social cognition and obsessive-compulsive behavior. Plasma oxytocin levels are high in children with Prader-willi syndrome (PWS) compared with unrelated and unaffected siblings. Deficiency of OXT hormone might contribute to pathogenesis of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Stimulates uterine contraction and lactation; increases Na+ excretion; stimulates myometrial GTPase and phospholipase C.
