  • Relevance
    Vasopressin, also known as arginine vasopressin (AVP) or antidiuretic hormone (ADH), is a posterior pituitary hormone that is synthesised in the hypothalamus. Vasopressin is synthesised as a precursor protein that consists of arginine vasopressin and two associated proteins, neurophysin 2 and the glycopeptide copeptin. Vasopressin, together with its carrier protein neurophysin II, is packaged into neurosecretory vesicles and transported axonally to the nerve endings in the neurohypophysis, where it is either stored or secreted into the bloodstream. Vasopressin acts as a growth factor by enhancing pH regulation through acid-base transport systems. It has a direct antidiuretic action on the kidney and also causes vasoconstriction of the peripheral vessels. Vasopressin can also contract smooth muscle during parturition and lactation. It also plays a role in cognition, tolerance, adaptation and complex sexual and maternal behaviour, as well as in the regulation of water excretion and cardiovascular functions. Mutations in the vasopressin precursor cause autosomal dominant neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus (ADNDI), which is characterised by persistant thirst, polydipsia and polyuria.

Images

  • Minipigs were deeply anesthetized with a combination of midazolam and ketamine, prior to transcardial perfusion with phosphate buffered 4% paraformaldehyde (pH 7.4). After perfusion, the brains were removed with special care taken to preserve the optic chiasm and the median eminence. Blocks of tissue containing the hypothalami were dissected, postfixed in the same fixative for 1 day and subsequently cryoprotected in 30% sucrose for 3–4 days, prior to freezing. 10 series of 40-mm thick coronal (6 animals), sagittal (1 animal), and horizontal (1 animal) cryostat sections were collected. Coronal sections for immunohistochemistry were maintained at -18°C as free-floating sections in a cryoprotectant poly-ethylene glycol solution for up to four weeks.
    Immunohistochemistry was performed using the avidin-biotin method. Accordingly, free-floating sections were first rinsed in Tris-buffered saline (TBS; 0.05 M; pH 7.4) for 15 minutes. Incubations with avidin (0.1%) and

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry.

Although we produce many in-house antibodies, we obtain other antibodies from a wide range of sources. Therefore, comparison experiments will not often have been done.

In this instance, none of our Vasopressin antibodies have been tested in IP.Therefore, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy an anti-Vasopressin antibody now, test it in IP and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of 1 free PRIMARY ANTIBODY.

If you wish to be more certain about which product to chose, I can suggest choosing the antibody that has been best characterized. By this I mean the antibody that has been tested in the most applications and has the most data available (on the datasheet).


If you are interested in our Abreview offer, please follow these steps:

1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed a product in IP. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchase so please wait for my reply before ordering.

2. Purchase either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com).

3. Test it in IP.

4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.

5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for any PRIMARY ANTIBODY ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue.

We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if the antibody turns out to be unsuitable for IP, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further.
