Release of the Antidiuretic Hormone by Bradykinin in Rats

  • M. C. Harris
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 8)


Experiments have been performed to examine whether bradykinin releases the antidiuretic hormone (ADH) in rats and, if so, whether the release is secondary to hypotension or results from a direct action of the bradykinin on the central nervous system.
