Chemical Vasopressins

Name Vasopressins
Equivalent Terms Antidiuretic Hormones | beta Hypophamine | beta-Hypophamine | Pitressin | Vasopressin | Vasopressin (USP)
CAS Registry Number 11000-17-2
Definition Antidiuretic hormones released by the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS of all vertebrates (structure varies with species) to regulate water balance and OSMOLARITY. In general, vasopressin is a nonapeptide consisting of a six-amino-acid ring with a cysteine 1 to cysteine 6 disulfide bridge or an octapeptide containing a CYSTINE. All mammals have arginine vasopressin except the pig with a lysine at position 8. Vasopressin, a vasoconstrictor, acts on the KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCTS to increase water reabsorption, increase blood volume and blood pressure.
