Effects of alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptides on neurosecretion and vascular responsiveness in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Effects of alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptides (alpha-hANP) on the norepinephrine overflow from the sympathetic nerve endings and vascular responsiveness were investigated in the perfused mesenteric intestinal loop preparations from 7- to 9-week-old spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and age-matched Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY). Pressor responses to… (More)
