Studies on the role of arginine vasotocin in relation to oviposition in laying hens

, : Studies on the role of arginine vasotocin in relation to oviposition in laying hens. Japanese Poultry Science 31(5): 358-362

The role of arginine vasotocin (AVT) was investigated in relation to oviposition in laying hens. The Posterior Pituitary of fowl hens was removed 1-2 h before oviposition of the mid-clutch egg, but all hens so treated laid at the expected time of oviposition. The administration of AVT antiserum (1 ml/fowl hen or 0.3 ml/quail hen) had no effect on oviposition time. It is suggested that AVT released from the posterior pituitary may not act directly to cause the expulsion of the uterine egg.
