After de Bold and co-workers identified 'atrial natriuretic factor' (ANF) as a major constituent of rat atrial granules with a potent diuretic and natriuretic effects (de Bold et al, 1981; Cantin & Genest, 1985), ANF were soon recognized as a ubiquitous hormonal system in both mammalian and non-mammalian vertebrates.

The hormone is known as Atrial Natriuretic Factor and was first discovered in 1981 by Adolfo de Bold, then at Queen's University (Kingston, Ont.)
Secreted by the heart, the hormone -- calledatrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) or atrial natriuretic factor -- can act as a diuretic, influencing fluid movement.
Semi-quantitative RT PCR was performed to examine mRNA expression of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) (5-CGGTGTCCA ACACAGATCTGAT-3 and 5-GGCTCCAATCCTGTCAATCC TAC-3) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) (5-CGAGACA AGGGAGAACACG-3 and 5-CCAAAGCAGCTTGAGATA TGT-3).
