Gene: AVP (arginine vasopressin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AVP
Name: arginine vasopressin
RGD ID: 68968
Description: Exhibits V1A vasopressin receptor binding activity; molecular function regulator; and protein kinase activity. Involved in intracellular signal transduction; negative regulation of apoptotic process; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Predicted to localize to extracellular space and secretory granule. Implicated in diabetes insipidus and neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
