Abstract

The data on the development of molecular mechanism of the antidiuretic effect of vasopressin and the molecular structure of the AVP receptor, cytosolic cAMP-dependent protein-kinases and renal response to AVP, are discussed. The experiments were performed in normal rats and mice, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus mutants and rats treated with cortisol in early postnatal period. The development of the kidney sensitivity to AVP seems to be closely connected with the development of the molecular structure of the AVP receptor, age-related increase of the AVP-activated adenylate cyclase, and the maturation of cAMP-dependent protein kinases.
