Myocardial recruitment during ANF mRNA increase with volume overload in the rat.


A synthetic oligonucleotide probe complementary to messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) encoding for the C-terminal portion of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) has been used to study the expression of the ANF gene in rat myocardium. Four experimental models were studied: binephrectomy (for 48 h); ligature of both ureters (for 48 h); deoxycorticosterone acetate… (More)
