Cat. No. 3377
Biological ActivitySelective vasopressin V1A receptor antagonist. Inhibits vasopressin and oxytocin-induced increases in intracellular calcium concentrations in vitro (IC50 values are 5 and 30 nM respectively). Exhibits potent and prolonged antivasopressor activity and induces anxiolytic-like effects in the dorsal, but not ventral, hippocampus in vivo.
(Modifications: Tyr-1 = Pmp-Tyr(Me), Gly-8 = C-terminal amide)
