03/01/1993 - "3. In toads subjected to dehydration by evaporation (20% weight loss) or to osmotic stress by immersion in 2% NaCl for 3 hr (6% weight loss), the molar ratio hydrin 2/vasotocin (about 2:1) remained similar to the one observed in control animals. "
08/01/1993 - "In the first group, the proportions of the two peptides are approximately equal whereas in the two toads the molar ratio hydrin 2 to vasotocin reaches 2. The ratio does not appear to vary significantly when these toads are either submitted to dehydration or placed in saline solutions. "
