Arginine vasopressin (AVP), also termed as antidiuretic hormone, is a key hormone to regulate the osmoregulatory, hemodynamic, endocrinologic, and central nervous effect in human body [4].
The pituitary in particular coordinates osmoregulatory responses to changes in environmental salinity via the release of pituitary hormones, such as GH, PRL, and SL, in direct response to perturbations of extracellular osmolality [4,5].
