The first described was the cardiac hormone atrial natriurctic factor, now known as atrial natriuretic peptidc (ANP). 1Ъе major molecular form of circulating ANP is a 28 amino acid peptide with a 17 amino acid ring structure formed by a disulphide bridge between cysteincs at positions 7 and 23: this form of ANP is also described as «ANP. The ANP precursor molecule synthesized within the myocytes is a 151 amino acid peptide (prc-pro-ANP) which is cleaved to a 126 amino acid peptide (рго-ANP or yANP) - the main stor­ age form.

TF*FP • 43 j gerated claims tor tests have been made on the basis of their performance in a highly selected group. In this example, sensitivity and specificity were as­ sumed to be the same in the two groups examined. This was an assumption made for convenience, but it docs not have to be the case and indeed may well not be. In choos­ ing people in whom to examine the performance of a new test, it is natural to do this in healthy individuals and pa­ tients with well established disease. Under such circum­ stances, the proportion of false positive and false negative results are likely to be lower than when the test is applied to a more heterogeneous sample.

During states of overhydratiom when AVP secretion is suppressed, the luminal surfaces of the collecting duct cells remain impermeable to water. Luminal fluid rendered hypotonic in the diluting segment of the kidney is not exposed to the medullary hypcrtonicity and dilute urine is formed. The renal response to AVP is thus dependent on an intact receptor-effector mechanism within the collecting duct cell resulting in an alteration in luminal membrane permeability and upon the presence of a medullary osmotic gradient.
