The renal and endocrine actions of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) administered at a rate to induce plasma concentrations within the physiological range have been re-examined in conscious rats in which body fluid volume was maintained by infusion of replacement fluid at a rate to match spontaneous urine losses (servo-controlled replacement) throughout experimentation. The involvement of vasopressin in the actions of ANP was assessed by comparing the responses induced in Brattleboro (DI) and… CONTINUE READING
