Studies have been performed to investigate the regulation of arginine vasopressin (AVP) mRNA expression in fetal hypothalamic cultures. AVP mRNA-positive neurones were identified by in-situ hybridization histochemistry, and changes in mRNA expression were quantitated by nuclease protection assay. Both protein kinase C and protein kinase A activators increased the expression of AVP mRNA, in contrast to dexamethasone, which inhibited the responses to both protein kinase C and protein kinase A activation.
