Abstract Previous studies have demonstrated a hypothalamic site of action of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) to inhibit luteinizing hormone and an opioid mechanism has been suggested. We have identified the paraventricular nucleus as at least one locus of action of ANP since site-specific injection of 0.1 nmol, bilaterally into this nucleus, but not the… CONTINUE READING
