Oxytocin/vitamin D signal transduction

Oxytocin/vitamin D receptor (VDR) signaling may affect differentially cellular stress response and serotonin synthesis in the hypothalamus. [1][2]

Anandamide mobilization (trafficking) by intracellular cannabinoid receptors activation may enhance endogenous oxytocin and melatonin levels. [3]
