PURPOSE To ascertain whether the corneal endothelium exhibits specific receptors for atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and to characterize partially any binding activity. METHODS Most experiments employed radioligand-binding techniques to characterize 125I-ANP binding activity. Guanylate cyclase and corneal deturgescence assays were used in an attempt to… CONTINUE READING
