Central effects of atrial natriuretic factor on renal salt excretion.


Atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) has been localized in periventricular brain areas involved in cardiovascular and fluid control. We investigated the effect of intracerebroventricular (icv) ANF (alpha-rat atriopeptin III) on renal sodium excretion in unilaterally nephrectomized, conscious unrestrained rats fitted with a chronic ureteral catheter.
