Immunoreactivity of Bufo marinus heart for atrial natriuretic factor.

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 121(2):235-245.

This communication shows that the toad Bufo marinus L. heart contains immunoreactive-atrial natriuretic factor (IR-ANF) which is largely present in the atrial myofibers and in several layers of cardiomyocytes of the ventricles. Atrial myocytes of the truncus arteriosus wall also show IR-ANF content. Functional aspects of Bufo marinus body fluid homeostasis related to these observations are discussed.
