Biochem/physiol Actions

Oxytocin is a nonapeptide hormone that influences the social behavior in mammals that live in groups. Oxytocin binds to oxytocin receptor (OXTR) and regulates the ability to socially communicate and comprehend vocal communication. Polymorphisms in gene that codes of this receptor are associated with the severity of communication defects commonly observed in autism.
