Antiproliferative Effect of Oxytocin through Specific Oxytocin Receptors in Human Neuroblastoma and Astrocytoma Cell Lines
Oxytocin receptors (OTR) have been characterized and localized in different areas of the central nervous system where they probably regulate different OT-dependent behavioural, reproductive and ingestive effects. Moreover, OTR have been described in normal glial cells (astrocytes) from rat hypothalami in culture1.
