Molecular Variation in AVP and AVPR1a in New World Monkeys (Primates, Platyrrhini): Evolution and Implications for Social Monogamy

  Scientific Paper Ren D1, Chin KR2, French JA2. Interested medical professionals can read through the full paper, also published in PLOS One, here. BACKGROUND The neurohypophysial hormone arginine vasopressin (AVP) plays important roles in fluid regulation and vascular resistance. Differences in AVP receptor expression, particularly mediated through variation in the noncoding promoter region of the primary receptor …
