1. To explore the role of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) in the response to an acute saline load, we compared plasma hormone and urinary electrolyte interrelationships during administration of ANF and saline. Plasma concentrations of ANF, renin, angiotensin II and aldosterone, together with urine volume and electrolytes, were measured during infusions of placebo, ANF [alpha-human ANF (99-126)] and 0.9% (w/v) NaCl solution in normal subjects under standardized conditions of diet and posture. 2… CONTINUE READING
