Rat atrial natriuretic peptide stimulates K+ fluxes in human erythrocytes
Esparza N., Díez J.
Ouabain- and bumetanide-resistant potassium fluxes were measured in human erythrocytes incubated in a medium containing calcium and a calcium ionophore.
Pharmacological concentrations of rat atrial natriuretic peptide stimulated these fluxes. Although human erythrocytes lack atrial natriuretic peptide receptors, our results suggest that the hormone can modify transmembrane K+ movements.
