The compartmental effects of angiotensin II (AII) and arginine-vasopressin (AVP) on renal prostaglandin (PG) formation were studied in the isolated perfused kidney of the rabbit by superfusion bioassay of venous and ureteral effluents (VE and UE) and radioimmunoassay (RIA). Comparable results were obtained with either bioassay or RIA when used to quantitate renal PG release. The effects on PG release into the VE were similar for AII and AVP, as were their pressor responses. However, their… CONTINUE READING
