Anatomical structures with this receptor

  • kidney

    Induced phenotypes

    • X-linked nephrogenic diabetes insipidus
      • Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus is characterised by the failure of the kidney to respond to arginine vasopressin (AVP) because of a receptor or postreceptor defect, despite raised serum concentrations of AVP. [1]
  • lung

    • expression of the vasopressin V2 receptor in fetal and adult human lung was examined using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, Northern blot analysis, and DNA sequencing. [2]
