Abstract

The atria of the heart produce peptides which are released into the systemic circulation in response to an increase in right atrial pressure (1,2). The role of these peptides in the physiological control of renal and cardiovascular function is, however, less well established. We present here studies on the effects of two physiological stimuli — changes in posture and salt intake — on plasma concentrations of ANP and renal function.
