Biochem/physiol Actions

Deamino-Pen1, O-Me-Tyr2, Arg8-Vasopressin is a V1 antagonist that stabilizes the cardiocirculatory function in normal human as well as in patients suffering from catecholamine-resistant vasodilatory shock.It can also stimulate three acid-base transporters and hence increases the capability of the cell to regulate pHi.

Preparation Note

deamino-Cys1, Val4, D-Arg8-Vasopressin dissolves in water at 1 mg/ml to yield a clear, colorless solution.

Subcutaneously (s.c.) administered [Arg8]vasopressin (AVP) potentiated seizures induced by intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of 1.95 mg pilocarpine (a muscarinic cholinergic agonist). A bell-shaped relation between dose and effect was found. I.c.v. pretreatment with a V1, V2 or oxytocin receptor antagonist was...

This work describes a liquid chromatography-electrospray tandem mass spectrometry method for detection of desmopressin in human plasma in the low femtomolar range. Desmopressin is a synthetic analogue of the antidiuretic hormone arginine vasopressin and it might be used by athletes...

The neurohypophyseal peptides arginine vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) mediate a wide variety of peripheral and central physiological and behavioral effects by acting on four different G-protein coupled receptors, termed V1a (vascular), V1b (pituitary), V2 (renal), and OT (uterine). We...

The gastrointestinal absorption of a series of vasopressin (VP) analogues with enhanced enzymatic stability was determined in chronically catheterized, conscious rats. The following peptides were used: [Mpa1,D-Arg8]vasopressin (dDAVP), [Mpa1,Asn4,D-Arg8]VP, [Mpa1,Val4,D-Arg8]VP, [Mpa1,(CH3)3Ala4,D-Arg8]VP, [Mpa1,Tyr(ethyl)2,D-Arg8]VP, and [Mpa1,D-Tyr(ethyl)2,Ile3,Val4,D-Arg8]VP. The peptides were administered by gavage...

Vasodilatory shock is a potentially lethal complication of severe disease in critically ill patients. Currently, catecholamines are the most widely used vasopressor agents to support blood pressure, but loss of catecholamine pressor effects is a well-known clinical dilemma. Arginine vasopressin...
