 Synonyms & Historicals
Vasopressins .
Pitressin .
Vasopressin .
Vasopressin (USP) .
beta Hypophamine .
Antidiuretic Hormones .
beta-Hypophamine .
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. .
Arginine Vasopressin .
Arg-Vasopressin .
Argipressin Tannate .
Arg Vasopressin .
Argipressin .
Vasopressin, Arginine .
The predominant form of mammalian antidiuretic hormone. It is a nonapeptide containing an ARGININE at residue 8 and two disulfide-linked cysteines at residues of 1 and 6. Arg-vasopressin is used to treat DIABETES INSIPIDUS or to improve vasomotor tone and BLOOD PRESSURE. .
Lypressin .
8-Lysine Vasopressin .
Diapid .
Lys-Vasopressin .
Lysyl Vasopressin .
Postacton .
8 Lysine Vasopressin .
Lys Vasopressin .
Vasopressin, 8-Lysine .
Vasopressin, Lysyl .
Lysine Vasopressin .
Vasopressin, Lysine .
The porcine antidiuretic hormone (VASOPRESSINS). It is a cyclic nonapeptide that differs from ARG-VASOPRESSIN by one amino acid, containing a LYSINE at residue 8 instead of an ARGININE. Lys-vasopressin is used to treat DIABETES INSIPIDUS or to improve vasomotor tone and BLOOD PRESSURE. .
