Atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) causes plasma fluid to shift out of the circulation and enhances the escape of radiolabeled albumin. Examination of the mechanisms by which ANF alters microcirculatory fluid and protein transfer will likely require studies in localized vascular regions. This study was aimed at determining the specific organs in which ANF(More)
Experiments utilized the open cremaster preparation to test the hypothesis that atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)-induced volume changes result from microvascular resistance alterations. Atrial natriuretic peptide (25, 100, and 500 ng/kg/min, IV) or vehicle was infused into anesthetized rats. At the two highest ANP infusion rates, mean arterial pressure was(More)
