ADH (antidiuretic hormone)

a hormone secreted by neurosecretory cells of the HYPOTHALAMUS and released by the posterior lobe of the PITUITARY GLAND. ADH stimulates the reabsorption of water through the distal-convoluted tubule of the KIDNEY nephron in mammals and thus limits the water content and the overall volume of urine.
