Accelerated secretion of brain natriuretic peptide from the hypertrophied ventricles in experimental malignant hypertension.


Plasma concentrations of immunoreactive (ir) atrial (ANP) and brain (BNP) natriuretic peptides were measured in the prehypertensive and hypertensive phases in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and in the malignant phase of hypertension caused by deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt in SHR. The secretory rate of ANP and BNP were examined in the… (More)
