    Abstract

    Recent evidence suggests the presence of a dual natriuretic peptide system consisting of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) from the atrium and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) from the ventricle. Discrete roles have been postulated for these two natriuretic peptides in the control of circulatory homeostasis. We have therefore compared the release of ANF and BNP in response to an acute saline load to explore a differential pattern of release for the two natriuretic peptides in man.
