Experiments were carried out in situ and in vivo to investigate the relationship between natriuretic peptides (NPs) and humoral catecholamine secretion in the American eel (Anguilla rostrata), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias). In situ perfusion of the chromaffin tissue of A. rostrata with homologous atrial NP (ANP; 10−9 mol l−1) or ventricular NP (VNP; 10−9 mol l−1), or O. mykiss with either rat ANP (10−9 mol l−1), eel VNP (10−9 mol l−1), or trout VNP… CONTINUE READING
