Vasopressin is an important regulator of blood pressure. Taurinehas been shown to inhibit vasopressin release. An experiment was done to test the hypothesis that taurine acts as part of a negative feedback system that regulates vasopressin. The experiment measured the release of taurine from rat pituitary cells in the presence of vasopressin (10 nM) (Figure). Are these data consistent with the hypothesis? Why? Source: L. Rosso et al. 2004. Vasopressin-induced taurine efflux from rat pituicytes: a potential negative feedback for hormone secretion. The Journal of Physiology 554:731–742.
