We recently demonstrated the synthesis and secretion of an atriopeptin (AP)-like prohormone in rat neonatal and adult cortical kidney cell cultures. However, these cultures contained proximal as well as distal tubular epithelial cells; thus characterization of the peptide synthetic cell was not possible. Also, by immunohistochemical techniques, we localized(More)
Atriopeptin (AP) is synthesized and stored in the mammalian atria as a 126 amino acid prohormone (AP126). Upon secretion, the prohormone undergoes site specific proteolysis within the atria to yield the carboxyl terminal 28 amino acid hormone (AP28). The atrial cell responsible for AP126 bioactivation has not yet been determined. Primary neonatal rat atrial(More)
To date, atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) mRNA has eluded detection in the mammalian kidney, although we and others have identified ANF protein in the kidney using immunohistochemical and immunoassay techniques. Furthermore, we have demonstrated the synthesis and secretion of the ANF prohormone in the distal cortical nephron of the intact rat kidney and from(More)
