Effect of vasopressin on cardiovascular and renal functions and ANP release under plasma volume expansion.


To assess the mechanisms whereby arginine vasopressin (AVP) increases atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) release and to examine whether AVP-mediated ANP release affects the effect of AVP on the cardiovascular and renal function, AVP was infused continuously at a rate of 20 ng.kg-1.min-1 for 75 min following 200 ng/kg bolus injection under stepwise increases… (More)
