Abstract

In this review, the authors examine the biochemical mechanism involved in synthesis and release of ANF and its physiological effects concerning kidney and cardiovascular system. In addition, the authors underline the possible interactions of ANF with other hormones, particularly with the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and with vasopressin. Finally, the authors consider the possible physiopathological implications of ANF in the genesis of hypertension and hydrosaline retention.
