When there is a subsequent exposure to the same allergen, the allergen becomes bound to two adjacent IgE molecules, resulting in the degranulation of the cell to which the IgE is bound. Several types of (preexisting and/or newly formed) mediators are released. This results in a complex reaction that includes muscle contraction, dilatation, increased permeability of blood vessels, chemotaxis (a mediator-triggered process by which other cells are attracted to the site of the reaction), and release of other immune mediators.
The prohormone contains several subunits, each of which has a biological function. One of these subunits, ADH, is preceded by a signal peptide. When the osmoreceptors located in the anterolateral hypothalamus perceive a change in the osmolarity of the blood (normal range: 275–290 mOsm/kg), this signal peptide is alerted and ADH is released. ADH binds to receptors in the glomerulus and renal convoluted tubules with the result that water is reabsorbed. The sensitivity of the system is affected by the physiological status of the individual.
This triggers both thirst and ADH release. Both serve to dilute the excess solute load. The body then responds by increasing urine production and release. This excess urination gets rid of the excess solute and the excess consumed water. In principle, the same thing happens in the early phase of renal disease. In this instance, the solutes are not excreted because of the disease state of the kidney. ADH functions to retain water so as to dilute these solutes. In the end stage of this disease, the patients are thirsty and polyuric because their condition renders them less able to reabsorb water via the convoluted tubules.
