Pituitary gland hormone that controls water resorption by the kidneys, urine production and concentration, and water balance; also called vasopressin.
peptide hormone secreted from the posterior pituitary that affects the kidney and vascular system to conserve body water and increase blood pressure. Another name for this hormone is vasopressin.
A hormone that controls water reabsorption in the mammalian kidney. Also called vasopressin.
Also known as ADH. A natural body chemical that slows down the production of urine. Some children who wet their beds regularly may lack normal amounts of ADH.
Posterior pituitary peptide hormone that increases the amount of water reabsorbed from the renal tubules. Blood levels are controlled by sodium concentration in plasma; important in body water balance.
hormone secreted by the posterior pituitary gland (trade name Pitressin) and also by nerve endings in the hypothalamus; affects blood pressure by stimulating capillary muscles and reduces urine flow by affecting reabsorption of water by kidney tubules
Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) is a hormone (also called vasopressin) produced and released in the posterior pituitary gland. It stimulates the kidneys to absorb water from produced urine, thus controlling the water content of the body.
an-ti-di-yur-ET-ik HOR-moan (ADH) A hypothalamic hormone released from the posterior pituitary that acts on kidneys and smooth muscle cells of blood vessels to maintain the composition of body fluids. 665
hormone that decreases the excretion of urine (ie, retains water in body) and also causes contraction of smooth muscle in arteries (vasoconstriction); also referred to as vasopressin.
(Also called vasopressin.) a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland which helps the body conserve the right amount of water.
hormone produced by the hypothalamus and released by the pituitary gland that increases the permeability of the renal tubule of the nephron and thereby increases water reabsorption; also known as vasopressin.
(vasopressin) - A hormone that suppresses the secretion of urine. Vasopressin also stimulates the contraction of the muscular tissue of the capillaries and arterioles.
A hormone synthesized in the hypothalamus and secreted at the posterior pituitary; causes water retention at the kidneys and an elevation of blood pressure.
a hormone that controls the ability of the kidney to concentrate urine and assist in the maintenance of the fluid and electrolyte balance in the body
