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.
