Downregulation of atrial natriuretic factor clearance receptors in experimental chronic renal failure rats.


Studies were performed to examine the changes of renal ANF second messenger guanosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) responses and receptor properties in chronic renal failure (CRF). Five-sixths-nephrectomized and sham-operated Wistar rats were used. The glomerular filtration rate was decreased in the five-sixths-nephrectomized rats, which also had… (More)
