Oxytocin Acetate

July 20, 2023

Oxytocin (OXT) is a potent natriuretic hormone encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 20p13. It is synthesized along with its carrier protein neurophysin I from its inactive precursor prepro-OXT. OXT gene consists of three exons and two introns, where first exon codes for hormone OXT while other exon codes for neurophysin I.
Oxytocin acetate salt hydrate has been used in cell proliferation assay and is used in experiments to study the effect of oxytocin in the prelimbic (PL) region of the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) on anxiety. It is used as a marker in receptor autoradiography to assess nonspecific tissue binding in the periphery of the neonatal mouse.
