Effects of intravenously administered beta-human atrial natriuretic polypeptide in humans.

Abstract

beta-Human atrial natriuretic polypeptide (beta-hANP) is an antiparallel dimer of alpha-human ANP (alpha-hANP) that was isolated from human atria. Using synthetic beta-hANP and a radioimmunoassay for alpha-hANP that also detects beta-hANP, we have previously demonstrated that beta-hANP is converted into alpha-hANP in human plasma in vitro. In the present… (More)
