Chemical Neurophysins

Name Neurophysins
Equivalent Terms III, Neurophysin | II, Neurophysin | I, Neurophysin | Neurophysin I | Neurophysin II | Neurophysin III | Neurophysin, Oxytocin-Associated | Neurophysin, Vasopressin-Associated | Oxytocin Associated Neurophysin | Oxytocin-Associated Neurophysin | Vasopressin Associated Neurophysin | Vasopressin-Associated Neurophysin
Definition Carrier proteins for OXYTOCIN and VASOPRESSIN. They are polypeptides of about 10-kDa, synthesized in the HYPOTHALAMUS. Neurophysin I is associated with oxytocin and neurophysin II is associated with vasopressin in their respective precursors and during transportation down the axons to the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR).
