Effects of water deprivation and deamino [8-D-arginine] vasopressin on [14C]2-deoxyglucose uptake by the hypothalamo-hypophysial system in mice with hereditary nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.

The effects of water deprivation and the injection of deamino [8-D-arginine] vasopressin (dDAVP) on the metabolic activity of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial neurones of mice with inherited nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (DI +/+ Severe) have been investigated by quantitative autoradiography using the [14C]2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) technique. The relative metabolic activities (rma) of the paraventricular nuclei (PVN) and pars nervosa (PN) in severely diabetic mice were not significantly different from the rma of the PVN and PN in Non-severe or Normal mice, but the rma of the pars distalis (PD) was greater in the Severe mice than in the other two strains. Water deprivation (4-5 h) significantly increased the rma of the PVN and PN in Severe mice compared with those in Non-severe mice that had been similarly deprived of water. The increased rma of the PVN and PN produced by water deprivation in Severe mice was not reduced to normal by injection of dDAVP. The injection of dDAVP alone had no effect on the rma of the PVN or PN, but dDAVP injection alone, water deprivation alone, or both treatments combined decreased the rma of the PD in Severe mice. Neither the supraoptic nuclei (SON) nor any of the other 19 brain areas studied were affected, in terms of rma, by either water deprivation, injection of dDAVP, or both.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)[1]
