Long-term Storage Conditions
Argipressin regulates the body's retention of water, and increases peripheral vascular resistance. It plays a key role in homeostasis, social behavior, sexual motivation and pair bonding, and maternal responses to stress.
Vasopressin, also known as arginine vasopressin (AVP), antidiuretic hormone (ADH), or argipressin, is a neurohypophysial hormone found in most mammals. Its two primary functions are to retain water in the body and to constrict blood vessels.
