|1.||Dehydration (Water Stress)
09/01/1990 - "Arginine vasotocin and mesotocin in the anterior hypothalamus, neurohypophysis, proventriculus and plasma of White Leghorn cockerels, during dehydration."
09/01/1984 - "After an initial rise in serum AVT, mesotocin and prolactin levels during mild and moderate dehydration, concentrations of both AVT and prolactin tended to normalize during continued water deprivation, while those of mesotocin remained high throughout the whole dehydration experiment with the highest at the end of the water-deprivation period. "
09/01/1984 - "During dehydration increased circulating levels of AVT, mesotocin and prolactin were found. "
09/01/1984 - "Serum concentrations of arginine vasotocin (AVT), mesotocin and prolactin were determined by radioimmunoassay in Rhode Island Red chickens during and after dehydration, haemorrhage and oviposition. "
09/01/1984 - "Effect of dehydration, haemorrhage and oviposition on serum concentrations of vasotocin, mesotocin and prolactin in the chicken."
|2.||Body Weight (Weight, Body)
05/01/1995 - "By contrast, mesotocin was biphasic: at .025 and .25 micrograms/kg body weight it decreased urine volume with the same efficacy as arginine vasotocin, whereas it dramatically increased urine volume at the higher doses (2.5 and 25 micrograms/kg body weight)."
05/01/1995 - "Mesotocin and arginine vasotocin were injected intravenously once at various dosage levels (.0025 to 25 micrograms/kg body weight) immediately after an intravenous injection of 15 mL/kg body weight saline solution into hens in which an artificial anus had been surgically created, and the volume of urine excreted during a 5-h period, following the injection, was measured. "
09/01/1988 - "1. The effects of continuous infusion of 0.1, 1.0 and 10.0 mU/min/kg body weight of arginine vasotocin (AVT) or mesotocin (MT) on cardiovascular and thermoregulatory responses, on plasma osmolality and ionic composition and on plasma concentrations of AVT, MT, prolactin and aldosterone, were investigated in conscious White Leghorn cockerels. "
07/01/1990 - "In anaesthetized animals values of 39.7 +/- 9.7 pg/ml (11 males) and 31.5 +/- 12.9 pg/ml (6 females) were obtained; in four conscious catheterized animals, 9.4 +/- 6.3 pg/ml. Samples taken from three anaesthetized animals during exsanguination contained 271 +/- 102 (SD) pg MT/ml. It was concluded that hypothalamic and extra-hypothalamic MT is present in the marsupial brain and that as in placental mammals, stress stimulates the secretion of mesotocin."
01/01/1989 - "1. Renal tissue blood flow (renal perfusion) and plasma levels of arginine vasotocin (AVT) and mesotocin (MT) were measured in anesthetized chickens before and during hemorrhage. "
01/01/1989 - "Relationships between renal hemodynamics and plasma levels of arginine vasotocin and mesotocin during hemorrhage in the domestic fowl (Gallus domesticus)."
