Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

RelevanceVasopressin, 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.

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
