Renal responses to atrial natriuretic factor during converting enzyme inhibition.


The effect of converting enzyme inhibitor (CEI) on the renal response to atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) was determined in the rat. In the absence of CEI, ANF produced rapid and significant increases in sodium, potassium, calcium, and urine excretions while blood pressure declined transiently. In the presence of CEI, ANF enhanced the excretion of sodium and… (More)
