Lack of a direct regulatory effect of atrial natriuretic factor on prostaglandins and renin release by isolated rat glomeruli.

Abstract

We have tested the direct regulatory effect of synthetic Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP, 8-33aa) on prostaglandins and renin release by isolated rat glomeruli. Variable incubation times and doses of ANP did not modify the rate of PGE2, PGF2a and TXB2 production. Similar results were obtained for renin release. These data do not support a role for ANP in… (More)
