Unformatted text preview: 1. released from the posterior pituitary 2. responds to osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus a. decrease in osmo of ECF decreased release of ADH less permeability of distal tubule to water more water released into urine b. increase in osmo of ECF increased release of ADH more permeability of distal tubule to water less water released into urine E. Atrial Natriuretic Factor (ANF) Fluid, Electrolyte, Acid/Base Balance 1. released by cell of heart atria under high B.P. 2. reduces blood pressure and blood volume by INHIBITING nearly all events that promote vasoconstriction and Na + /water retention. F. Steroid Hormones 1. estrogen - increases resorption of Na + in distal convoluted tubule 2. glucocorticoids (cortisol) - increases resorption of Na + in the distal tubules...
