Inhibition of heme oxygenase in the central nervous system potentiates endotoxin-induced vasopressin release in the rat.

Abstract:

Previous in vitro studies have shown that increases in endogenous carbon monoxide (CO) generation via activation of the enzyme heme oxygenase (HO) within the rat hypothalamus are associated with the reduced release of the neuropeptides, vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin, while evidence concerning corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) is controversial. The present study investigated whether there is also a functional relationship between the HO-CO pathway and AVP and corticosterone (Cort) in viv...
