Papers on Oxytocin
Oxytocin receptor gene variation predicts subjective responses to MDMA.
de Wit et al., Houston, United States. In Soc Neurosci, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, "ecstasy") enhances desire to socialize and feelings of empathy, which are thought to be related to increased oxytocin levels.
Schuette et al., Chicago, United States. In Depress Anxiety, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: There is substantial recent interest in the role of oxytocin in social and affiliative behaviors-animal models of depression have suggested a link between oxytocin and mood.
Salsolinol upregulates oxytocin expression and release during lactation in sheep.
Misztal et al., Warsaw, Poland. In J Neuroendocrinol, Feb 2016
The present study investigated the effects of salsolinol, which was infused into the third ventricle of the brain, on oxytocin expression and release in lactating sheep 48 h after weaning of 8-week-old lambs.
Oxytocin modulates behavioral and physiological responses to a stressor in marmoset monkeys.
French et al., Omaha, United States. In Psychoneuroendocrinology, Jan 2016
The oxytocin (OXT) system has been identified as one candidate for mediating social buffering due to its role in the facilitation of social bonding and the expression of prosocial behavior.
Postpartum hemorrhage: guidelines for clinical practice from the French College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (CNGOF): in collaboration with the French Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care (SFAR).
Goffinet et al., Bordeaux, France. In Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol, Jan 2016
Oxytocin is the first-line prophylactic drug, regardless of the route of delivery (Grade A); a slowly dose of 5 or 10 IU can be administered (Grade A) either IV or IM (professional consensus).
Oxytocin-secreting system: A major part of the neuroendocrine center regulating immunologic activity.
Wang et al., Harbin, China. In J Neuroimmunol, Jan 2016
In this review, we provide a comprehensive examination of current evidence on interactions between the immune system and hypothalamic oxytocin-secreting system.
Method for collecting mouse milk without exogenous oxytocin stimulation.
Jousse et al., Clermont-Ferrand, France. In Biotechniques, Dec 2015
Oxytocin injection of the dam is usually used to stimulate milk ejection; however, exogenous oxytocin might have deleterious effects under some experimental conditions by modifying milk content as well as the physiology and behavior of the dam.
Is Oxytocin Application for Autism Spectrum Disorder Evidence-Based?
Bahn et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Exp Neurobiol, Dec 2015
Oxytocin has been identified as having an important role in maternal behavior and attachment, and it has been recognized as a key factor in the social developmental deficit seen in ASD.
Oxytocin and Social Adaptation: Insights from Neuroimaging Studies of Healthy and Clinical Populations.
Zink et al., Beijing, China. In Trends Cogn Sci, Dec 2015
The neuropeptide oxytocin (OT), implicated in social cognition and emotions pivotal to sociality and well-being, is a promising pharmacological target for social and emotional dysfunction.
Somato-axodendritic release of oxytocin into the brain due to calcium amplification is essential for social memory.
Higashida, Kanazawa, Japan. In J Physiol Sci, Dec 2015
UNASSIGNED: Oxytocin (OT) is released into the brain from the cell soma, axons, and dendrites of neurosecretory cells in the hypothalamus.
New opportunities in vasopressin and oxytocin research: a perspective from the amygdala.
van den Burg et al., Lausanne, Switzerland. In Annu Rev Neurosci, Aug 2015
In the present review, we discuss how the evolution of oxytocin and vasopressin from a single ancestor peptide after gene duplication has stimulated the development of the vertebrate social brain.
Oxytocin enables maternal behaviour by balancing cortical inhibition.
Froemke et al., New York City, United States. In Nature, May 2015
Oxytocin is important for social interactions and maternal behaviour.
Social evolution. Oxytocin-gaze positive loop and the coevolution of human-dog bonds.
Kikusui et al., Sagamihara, Japan. In Science, May 2015
We show that gazing behavior from dogs, but not wolves, increased urinary oxytocin concentrations in owners, which consequently facilitated owners' affiliation and increased oxytocin concentration in dogs.
Oxytocin modulates female sociosexual behavior through a specific class of prefrontal cortical interneurons.
Heintz et al., New York City, United States. In Cell, 2014
Human imaging studies have revealed that intranasal administration of the "prosocial" hormone oxytocin (OT) activates the frontal cortex, and this action of OT correlates with enhanced brain function in autism.
Oxytocin-mediated GABA inhibition during delivery attenuates autism pathogenesis in rodent offspring.
Ben-Ari et al., Marseille, France. In Science, 2014
We report that the oxytocin-mediated neuroprotective γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) excitatory-inhibitory shift during delivery is abolished in the valproate and fragile X rodent models of autism.
Bone marrow oxytocin mediates the anabolic action of estrogen on the skeleton.
Zaidi et al., New York City, United States. In J Biol Chem, 2012
OT release in bone marrow by a rising estrogen concentration may facilitate rapid skeletal recovery during the latter phases of lactation.
Sensitive parenting is associated with plasma oxytocin and polymorphisms in the OXTR and CD38 genes.
Ebstein et al., Ramat Gan, Israel. In Biol Psychiatry, 2012
Reduced plasma oxytocin and both oxytocin receptor and CD38 risk alleles were related to less parental touch
Oxytocin gene polymorphisms influence human dopaminergic function in a sex-dependent manner.
Zubieta et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Biol Psychiatry, 2012
variability within the oxytocin gene appear to explain interindividual differences in dopaminergic responses to stress
Affiliative behavior attenuates stress responses of GI tract via up-regulating hypothalamic oxytocin expression.
Takahashi et al., Milwaukee, United States. In Auton Neurosci, 2012
Data suggest that OXT expression is up-regulated in paraventricular nucleus by affiliative social behavior in response to stress; up-regulation of OXT expression may contribute to adaptation to reduce effects of stress on gastrointestinal tract.
Cell-type specific oxytocin gene expression from AAV delivered promoter deletion constructs into the rat supraoptic nucleus in vivo.
Gainer et al., Bethesda, United States. In Plos One, 2011
An approximately 116 bp region upstream of the transcription start site (TSS) in the OXT gene promoter is responsible for conferring the selectivity of OXT gene expression.
