H Bobby Fokidis et al.
Brain, behavior and evolution, 79(2), 84-97 (2011-11-10)
The neuropeptide arginine vasotocin (AVT: the avian homolog of vasopressin) has numerous functional roles including mediating social behaviors, coregulating the adrenocortical stress response and maintaining water balance. These functions of AVT make it susceptible to environmental influence, yet little is
Saori Yokoi et al.
PLoS genetics, 11(2), e1005009-e1005009 (2015-02-27)
To increase individual male fitness, males of various species remain near a (potential) mating partner and repel their rivals (mate-guarding). Mate-guarding is assumed to be mediated by two different types of motivation: sexual motivation toward the opposite sex and competitive
Lucas Court et al.
Hormones and behavior, 125, 104827-104827 (2020-08-01)
Estrogens play a key role in the sexual differentiation of the brain and behavior. While early estrogen actions exert masculinizing effects on the brain of male rodents, a diametrically opposite effect is observed in birds where estrogens demasculinize the brain
H Hausmann et al.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 93(14), 6907-6912 (1996-07-09)
To identify determinants that form nonapeptide hormone binding domains of the white sucker Catostomus commersoni [Arg8]vasotocin receptor, chimeric constructs encoding parts of the vasotocin receptor and parts of the isotocin receptor have been analyzed by [(3,5-3H)Tyr2, Arg8]vasotocin binding to membranes
David Kabelik et al.
Brain, behavior and evolution, 72(4), 283-294 (2008-11-20)
The neuropeptide arginine vasotocin (AVT) and its mammalian homologue arginine vasopressin (AVP) are neuromodulators known to be steroid sensitive and associated with social behaviors in a number of vertebrate taxa. However, the role of AVT/P in the regulation of aggression
D J Conklin et al.
General and comparative endocrinology, 114(1), 36-46 (1999-03-30)
Arginine vasotocin (AVT) is present in the neurohypophysis of all nonmammalian vertebrates and it appears to be the antecedent of the neurohypophysial nonapeptide hormones. Relatively little is known about AVT receptors in lower vertebrates, especially fish, and the present study
Rute Mendonça et al.
Brain, behavior and evolution, 82(3), 166-176 (2013-10-11)
The nonapeptide arginine vasotocin (AVT) and its mammalian homologue arginine vasopressin are well known for their role in the modulation of several intraspecific social behaviours, such as social approach/withdrawal and aggression. Recently, we suggested that AVT might also be important
R Mihai et al.
Neuroscience, 62(3), 783-792 (1994-10-01)
The excitatory effect of [Arg8]-vasopressin and its potential contribution to the circadian cycle of electrical activity in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the rat was investigated using extracellular recordings from hypothalamic slices from virgin female rats. The majority of neurons tested
J Bleu et al.
Journal of evolutionary biology, 25(7), 1264-1274 (2012-04-28)
Reproduction entails costs, and disentangling the relative importance of each stage of the reproductive cycle may be important to assess the costs and benefits of different reproductive strategies. We studied the early costs of reproduction in oviparous and viviparous lizard
C D Ingram et al.
Journal of neuroendocrinology, 6(4), 415-422 (1994-08-01)
Using extracellular recordings from brainstem slices in vitro, it was demonstrated that a high proportion (38/56) of neurones in the dorsal vagal complex of dioestrus, virgin female rats exhibit an excitatory response to [Arg8]-vasotocin (AVT). Pharmacological characterization suggests that these
Marta C Soares et al.
PloS one, 7(7), e39583-e39583 (2012-07-18)
In an interspecific cooperative context, individuals must be prepared to tolerate close interactive proximity to other species but also need to be able to respond to relevant social stimuli in the most appropriate manner. The neuropeptides vasopressin and oxytocin and
Olinda Almeida et al.
Brain, behavior and evolution, 85(3), 203-213 (2015-05-23)
The nonapeptide arginine vasotocin (AVT) and its mammalian homologue arginine vasopressin play a key role in the regulation of social behaviour across vertebrates. In teleost fishes, three AVT neuronal populations have been described in the preoptic area (POA): the parvocellular
