Is the secretion of atrial natriuretic peptide in man under neural control?

Abstract

AIMS Previous work has described short-term variation in the circulating plasma level of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), but the mechanism remains unknown. Our aim was to investigate the role of cardiac innervation in this variability. METHODS AND RESULTS Blood samples were obtained from the right atrium via a pulmonary artery flotation catheter every 2… (More)
