Details for anatomical structure: supra-optic nucleus

EndoNet ID: ENC00026

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/hormone/ENH00000

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: Oxytocin-Neurophysin 1

      • Hormone: antidiuretic hormone

        • Is stored in the neurohypophysis. [1]
        • Expression of vasopressin (VP) mRNA in the human supraoptic nuclei. [2]

        Influenced by:

        • thyroid hormone receptor beta 2
          in paraventricular_nucleus_of_hypothalamus
          • TRH is colocalized with vasopressin in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei and can participate in the regulation og biosynthesis and secretion of vasopressin [3]
          • TRH stimulates vasopressin biosynthesis in young rats [3]
      • Hormone: galanin-like peptide Isoform 1

      • Hormone: secretin

      Receptors

      • Receptor: galanin receptor 2
