The effects of vasopressin and related peptides upon the rat skeletal muscle cell line, L6, have been examined. No effects upon cellular cyclic AMP levels were found indicating that L6 cells possess no functional V2-vasopressin receptors. Vasopressin and its analogues did, however, stimulate the rapid and dose-dependent accumulation of inositol phosphates. This effect and the rank order of potency of vasopressin analogues demonstrate the presence of functional V1-vasopressin receptors upon L6 cells. These results suggest that the L6 line may be a useful model for vasopressin effects upon skeletal muscle metabolism.
