Aldosterone acts through the specific nuclear mineralocorticoid receptor, which is protected from cortisol (for which it has equal affinity) through the intracellular production of 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11βHSD). This enzyme converts cortisol to cortisone, for which the receptor has weak affinity. The response within the principal cells lining the distal tubules and collecting ducts is the apical influx of sodium via epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) stimulation and its efflux via basolateral Natriuretic peptides.

Fraser CG, Fogarty Y. Interpreting laboratory results. Br Med J 1989;298:1659–60. Although written some 23 years ago for a general medical readership, this leading article is still worth reading. It was one of the first general articles to draw attention to the importance of taking analytical and biological variation into account when interpreting laboratory data. Galen RS, Gambino SR. Beyond normality: the predictive value and efficiency of medical diagnoses. New York: John Wiley; 1975. The seminal text on the predictive value concept.

Three exons code for a 151 AA peptide (preproANP) which, following removal of the signal peptide, results in a 126 AA peptide (proANP) – the main storage form. On secretion into the circulation, proANP is cleaved into the N-terminal 1–98 peptide (NT-proANP), and the biologically active 99–126 peptide (ANP). The major stimulus to the secretion of ANP is atrial stretch and the major sites of synthesis are the atria. In 1988, a second natriuretic peptide was identified, in porcine brain, and termed brain natriuretic peptide (BNP).
