Natriuretic peptide receptors and the heart.

Abstract

It is 20 years since de Bold reported that homogenates of normal atria stimulated a natriuresis and diuresis when administered intravenously to rats. This observation led to the isolation of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) from cardiac tissue. Subsequently other peptides with a similar ring structure and biological properties have been recognised, named in… (More)
