Extracellular renal guanosine cyclic 3'5'-monophosphate modulates nitric oxide and pressure-induced natriuresis.

This study addresses the hypothesis that NO- and pressure-induced natriuresis are inhibited when guanosine cyclic 3',5'-monophosphate (cGMP) is prevented from being transported outside its renal synthesizing cells in vivo. Rats received a renal interstitial (RI) infusion of NO donor S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine (SNAP) or SNAP+organic anion transporter… CONTINUE READING
