We measured the effect of a constant infusion of rat atrial extract on the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), renal plasma flow (RPF), and plasma renin concentration (PRC) of bioassay rats. The infusion rate of the atrial extract was 0.038 ml/min, which represented 1.25 mg of homogenized atrial tissue/min. To ensure that dead space was cleared, clearance measurements during the atrial extract infusion were not begun until urine flow had increased and 300 microliter of urine had been excreted.
