Abstract

Relationships between renal kallikrein and plasma atrial natriuretic factor were investigated by measuring urinary kallikrein excretion (by spectrophotometric assay) and plasma atrial natriuretic factor (by radio-immunoassay after extraction from plasma) in 84 normal subjects and in 104 essential hypertensives with a normal renal function. The atrial natriuretic factor was significantly higher in the essential hypertensives than in the normal subjects (38.5 ± 1.3 versus 29.0 ± 1.3 pg/ml, P
