The major physiological roles of AVP are regulation of water balance in animals (antidiuretic action) and contraction of arterioles (vasopressor action).

Regulation of water balance
|Alternate Names||AVP; Arginine Vasopressin; Antidiuretic Hormone; Cys-Tyr-Phe- Gln-Asn-Cys-Pro-Arg-Gly-NH2 ; β-Hypophamine; Agripressin;[Arg8]-Vasopressin acetate salt|
|Application Notes||The major physiological roles of AVP are regulation of water balance in animals (antidiuretic action) and contraction of arterioles (vasopressor action).|
|Base Catalog Number||152962|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||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).|
