Oxytocin Acetate Description


Oxytocin is a mammalian hormone that acts primarily as a neuromodulator in the brain.

Oxytocin is best known for its roles in sexual reproduction, in particular during and after childbirth. It is released in large amounts after distension of the cervix and uterus during labor, facilitating birth, and after stimulation of the nipples, facilitating breastfeeding.

Recent studies have begun to investigate oxytocin's role in various behaviors, including orgasm, social recognition, pair bonding, anxiety, and maternal behaviors. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as the "love hormone". The inability to secrete oxytocin and feel empathy is linked to sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism and general manipulativeness.

Neuropeptide oxytocin is of great importance in social and reproductive behavior and emotions. Oxytocin or oxytocin-like drugs have many potential therapeutic applications. This can generate greater interest in testing oxytocin as a treatment for a number of disorders, and in developing central nervous system-penetrating oxytocin agonists suitable for clinical trials.
