The volume protective natriuretic peptide system in the inner ear. Comparison between vestibular and cochlear compartments.


It has been suggested that the family of natriuretic peptides (NP) has a protective role in volume overloading. Specific binding sites for atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and the kidney analog urodilatin (URO) were identified and quantified with computerized autoradiography and biochemical assay in the cryosection in the cochlear and vestibular (utricle… (More)
