Bovine atrial natriuretic peptide in heart failure.


The present study describes the concentration and molecular form of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in Holstein dairy cattle with mild (bacterial endocarditis; BEC) or severe (dilated cardiomyopathy; DCM) heart failure. Significant increases in plasma concentration of ANP were observed in cattle with DCM (73.3 +/- 16.02 pmol/l, n = 4, P less than 0.01) and… (More)
