We examined calcium and calmodulin regulation of atrial natriuretic factor stimulation of particulate-membrane guanylate cyclase (ANF-s-GC) in SK-NEP-1 cells. W7 and trifluoropiperazine, but not W5, inhibited whole cellular ANF-stimulated cyclic GMP accumulation (ANF-s-cGMP). EGTA and LaCl3 decreased ANF-s-GC and calmodulin reversed this inhibition.(More)
The genetic mechanisms driving normal brain development remain largely unknown. We performed genomic and immunohistochemical characterization of a novel, fatal human phenotype including extreme microcephaly with cerebral growth arrest at 14-18 weeks gestation in three full sisters born to healthy, non-consanguineous parents. Analysis of index cases and(More)
We investigated regulation of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF)-stimulated cellular cGMP accumulation (ANF-s-cGMP) in an ANF-responsive human renal cell line, SK-NEP-1. Dose-response data indicated that the EC50 for ANF(99-126) was 1.1 x 10(-9) M. Brain natriuretic peptide (10(-6) M) increased cGMP to a level indistinguishable from that of ANF (10(-6) M).(More)
The effects of amiloride on ANF binding and ANF stimulation of cGMP were evaluated in rat glomeruli. Amiloride increased ANF binding to whole glomeruli and to glomerular membrane preparations. In contrast, amiloride enhanced ANF-stimulated cGMP accumulation only at 37 degrees C in whole glomeruli, but not at 4 degrees C in whole glomeruli or at 37 degrees C(More)
In the rat, angiotensin II (AII), following specific interaction with sensitive central nervous system (CNS) receptors promotes release of vasopressin (ADH). We have examined the integrity of this chain of events by comparing the concentration, Bmax, and dissociation constant, Kd, in the CNS of Brattleboro rats (BB), a strain incapable of synthesizing ADH,(More)
125I-angiotensin II (125I-AII) binding was examined in the hypothalamic-thalamic-septal-midbrain (HTSM) region of HLA-Wistar rats in the presence of CNS-active agents. Angiotensin I, II, and III and saralasin competed for 125 I-AII binding, whereas structurally unrelated peptides such as arginine and lysine vasopressin, oxytocin, LHRH, TRH, bradykinin, and(More)
