Acute plasma volume reduction by atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) may be mediated, at least in part, by increased exchange vessel water conductivity (Lp). The present study tests the hypothesis that physiological levels of ANP acutely and reversibly elevate single capillary Lp. Paired, in situ measurements of Lp were obtained using the modified Landis technique in individually perfused mesenteric capillaries of the frog, Rana pipiens. Control Lp measurements ranged from 0.1 to 40 x 10(-7) cm.s… CONTINUE READING
