    The purpose of this study is to elucidate factors determining the release of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in normal volunteers at rest. Ten normal volunteers were included in this study. Ages ranged between twenty-seven and thirty-three years (mean twenty-seven). The authors measured plasma...

    Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) acts acutely to reduce plasma volume by at least 3 mechanisms: increased renal excretion of salt and water, vasodilation, and increased vascular permeability. Authors of a study in this issue of the JCI performed a knockout of the receptor for ANP in vascular...

    The authors researched the association between plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) levels and atrial pressure changes and cardiac nerves in 14 dogs. The dogs were divided into two groups, each group containing 7 dogs. In the second group, cardiac denervation was performed. Left atrial...

    Background: Most effects of atrial (ANP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) result from stimulation of the guanylyl-cyclase type A receptor. Chronic elevation causes hyporesponsiveness to ANP, whereas BNP effects tend to be preserved, implying an additional pathway of action. We,...

    The article reports that natriuretic peptide receptors mediate different responses in rat renal microvessels. Since the discovery of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in 1981, it has been shown that inhibition of tubular sodium reabsorption and an increase in glomerular filtration rate are...

    Previous studies have shown that short-term high salt intake unmasks blunted plasma aldosterone suppression in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRsp). The aim of this study was to evaluate the response of aldosterone biosynthesis and production to a sustained exposure to the...

    Background. Excess circulating thyroid hormones are associated with increased cardiac atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) secretion but the exact mechanisms involved have not been fully elucidated in vivo. Methods. To examine whether thyroid hormone regulation of ANP secretion is the result of a...
