Intracranial injection of eel angiotensin II (eANG II, 5x10(-13)-5x10(-8) mol), acetylcholine (ACh, 5x10(-12)-5x10(-9) mol), substance P (5x10(-10) mol) and isoproterenol (a beta-adrenoceptor agonist, 5x10(-11)-5x10(-9) mol) enhanced water intake in the seawater eel. The effects of eANG II, ACh and isoproterenol were dose-dependent. By contrast, water intake was inhibited by intracranial injection of eel atrial natriuretic peptide (eANP, 5x10(-13)-5x10(-10) mol), serotonin (5-HT, 5x10(-12)-5x10(-8) mol), ghrelin (5x10(-12)-5x10(-10) mol), gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA, 5x10(-11)-5x10(-8) mol), prolactin (PRL, 5x10(-10)-5x10(-9) mol), arginine vasotocin (AVT, 5x10(-12) mol), vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP, 5x10(-11) mol), noradrenaline (5x10(-9) mol l(-1)) and phenylephrine (alpha-adrenoceptor agonist, 5x10(-11)-5x10(-9) mol). The inhibitory effects of eANP, 5-HT, ghrelin, GABA, PRL and phenylephrine were dose-dependent. The intracranial stimulatory effect of eANG II was relatively long-lasting compared with the intravenous effect. The stimulatory effect of intravenous eANG II disappeared immediately, and was followed by an inhibition, which could be well explained by an increase in eANP secretion from the atrium.
