High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Arginine vasopressin,
also known as vasopressin, argipressin or antidiuretic hormone
(ADH), is a hormone found in most mammals, including humans.
Vasopressin is a peptide hormone that controls the reabsorbtion of
molecules in the tubules of the kidneys by affecting the tissue's
permeability. It plays a key role in homeostasis, and the
regulation of water, glucose, and salts in the blood. It is derived
from a preprohormone precursor that is synthesized in the
hypothalamus and stored in vesicles at the posterior pituitary.
Most of it is stored in the posterior pituitary to be released into
the blood stream; however, some of it is also released directly
into the brain.
