The role of kinins and atrial natriuretic peptide on the renal effects of neutral endopeptidase inhibitor in rats.


To further elucidate the natriuretic mechanisms of neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) inhibition, we employed a new specific NEP inhibitor, UK 73967 (UK), with or without a specific kinin receptor antagonist, Hoe 140 (Hoe), in Sprague-Dawley rats, and evaluated the renal NEP, kinins and plasma ANP simultaneously. There were no significant changes in urinary… (More)
