Gene Symbol AVP
Gene Full Name arginine vasopressin
Background Arginine vasopressin (AVP), also known as vasopressin, argipressin or antidiuretic hormone (ADH), is a hormone found in most mammals, including humans. Vasopressin is a peptide hormone that controls the reabsorption of molecules in the tubules of the kidneys by affecting the tissue's permeability. It also increases peripheral vascular resistance, which in turn increases arterial blood pressure. It plays a key role in homeostasis, and the regulation of water, glucose, and salts in the blood. It is derived from a preprohormone precursor that is synthesized in the hypothalamus and stored in vesicles at the posterior pituitary. Most of it is stored in the posterior pituitary to be released into the bloodstream. However, some AVP is also released directly into the brain.
Function Neurophysin 2 specifically binds vasopressin.
Vasopressin has a direct antidiuretic action on the kidney, it also causes vasoconstriction of the peripheral vessels. [UniProt]
