Distribution and molecular forms of C-type natriuretic peptide in plasma and tissue of a dogfish, Triakis scyllia.
A radioimmunoassay (RIA) to measure C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) of a dogfish, Triakis scyllia, was established, and plasma and tissue levels of CNP were measured. Molecular forms of CNP inExpand

Brain natriuretic peptide‐like immunoreactivity is present in human plasma
A highly specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay (RIA) for a novel porcine brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) has been established to elucidate whether BNP‐like immunoreactivity (LI) is present in humanExpand

Brain natriuretic peptides in human plasma, spinal cord and cerebrospinal fluid.
In cases of heart failure, the plasma level of immunoreactive human brain natriuretic peptide (IR-hBNP) measured by radioimmunoassay increased 6- to 46-fold over normal level (4.1 +/- 1.0 pg/ml),Expand

Comparison of Different Parathyroid Hormone Radioimmunoassays in Uremic Patients with Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels of patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) were measured by three different radioimmunoassays (RIA); RIA for mid-region PTH by antibody CH9 (i-PTH) (1), RIA forExpand

Concentrations and molecular forms of C-type natriuretic peptide in brain and cerebrospinal fluid.
To develop a radioimmunoassay (RIA) specific for human C-type natriuretic peptide (hCNP), we used a highly specific antiserum raised in rabbits. Quantitative inhibition tests with various natriureticExpand

Long-term production of pre-existing alloantibodies to E and c after allogenic BMT in a patient with aplastic anemia resulting in delayed hemolytic anemia.
BACKGROUND Delayed hemolysis mediated by long-term production of pre-existing recipient-derived antibodies directed against donor RBC antigens after allogenic BMT is an unusual complication ofExpand

Endothelin-1- and endothelin-3-like immunoreactivity in human cerebrospinal fluid.
Using highly specific and sensitive radioimmunoassays (RIAs) for endothelin-1 (ET-1) and endothelin-3 (ET-3), we have determined the concentrations of ET-1- and ET-3-like immunoreactivities (LI) inExpand

Degradation and distribution of brain natriuretic peptide in porcine tissues.
Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a novel peptide that has actions similar to atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP). The present study investigated BNP localization in the heart, ANP and BNP contents inExpand
