Molecular studies of the atrial natriuretic factor gene

Academic Article


  • The molecular biology of human atrial natriuretic factor was studied. A cloned rat cDNA probe was used to analyze tissue for the synthesis of atrial natriuretic factor, and the human gene was identified and sequenced. Nucleotide sequence comparison of human and rodent atrial natriuretic factor genes suggests regions that are critical for regulated expression of this cardiac hormone. © 1985 American Heart Association, Inc.
