Inbred Dahl salt-sensitive rats had a higher content of atrial natriuretic factor by bioassay in their atria than did inbred Dahl salt-resistant rats. This finding was true both in young 1- to 2-month-old rats, when blood pressure differences between strains were small, and in 7-month-old rats, when blood pressure differences were marked. Atria from salt-sensitive rats had more atrial natriuretic factor than did atria from salt-resistant rats when the rats were fed either low (0.3% NaCl) or… CONTINUE READING

In young , prehypertensive salt - sensitive rats , intravenous injections of atrial natriuretic factor caused significantly less natriuresis and diuresis than in salt - resistant rats ( p less than 0.05 ) .
