[Atrial natriuretic polypeptide in the human and rat spinal cord].


The widespread distribution of atrial natriuretic polypeptide (ANP) immunoreactive material was demonstrated in the human and rat spinal cord, using specific immunogold-silver staining technique and radioimmunoassay. Immunogold-silver staining studies showed that ANP immunoreactive neurons were quite prevalent in the human spinal cord. ANP immunoreactive… (More)
