Arginine-vasopressin has a widespread distribution in the nervous system, and has been implicated in cellular and behavioral functions. Its effect on the neuromuscular synapse reveals that it produces long-lasting augmentation in synaptic transmission due to an increase in spontaneous and nerve stimulation evoked quantal transmitter release. No significant postsynaptic effect was detected.
