List the Hormones in Urine
Angiotensin II
Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or vasopressin
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)
What stimulates the release of Angiotensin II?
Low blood volume/pressure. Is renin-induced
What is the effect of Angiotensin II
Increases reabsorption of NA, water, other solutes.
Increases Blood volume
What stimulates Aldosterone
Increase of Angiotensin II & plasma K
Released by adrenal cortex
What is the effect of Aldosterone?
Increases secretion of K & resbsorption of NA, Cl, water, so increases blood volume
What stimulates release of Antidiuretic hormone ADH/Vasopressin?
Increased osmolarity of extracellular fluid or DECREASED blood volume
RELEASED from Posterior Pituitary Gland
What are the effects of ADH Antidiuretic hormone?
Increases facultative reabsorption or water which decreases osmolarity of body fluids
What stimulates Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)
Stretching of atria of heart
What are the effects of Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)?
INCREASES excretion of NA in urine (Natriuresis)
INCREASES urine output (diuresis)
DECREASES Blood volume
