This paper reports the in vitro and in vivo characterisation of a nonpeptide, orally active, vasopressin V(1A) and V(2) receptor antagonist, YM087 (methyl-1,4,5,6-tetrahydroimidazo[4, 5-d][1]benzoazepine-6-carbonyl)-2-phenylbenzanilide monohydrochloride) in the rat. YM087 dose dependently displaced the vasopressin V(1A) receptor antagonist radioligand, 125I-labelled [d(CH(2))(5),sarcosine(7)]vasopressin at vasopressin V(1A) receptors in liver and kidney medulla membranes and caused a concentration dependent displacement of the vasopressin V(2) receptor antagonist radioligand [3H]desGly-NH(2)(9)[d(CH(2))(5), D-Ile(2), Ile(4)]vasopressin at vasopressin V(2) receptors in kidney medulla membrane..
