Evidence has accumulated that atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) plays important roles in sea-water adaptation in eels. However, the roles of the other two natriuretic peptides (CNP and VNP) in osmoregulation have not been examined yet. In the present study, the effects of homologous ANP, CNP and VNP were compared on plasma Na+ concentration (an indicator of plasma osmolality), hematocrit (an approximate indicator of blood volume) and drinking rate in freshwater- and seawater-adapted eels.
