    Notes: Summary Two major forms of cardiac peptides have been established in the last few years: (a) a prohormone of 126 amino acids (CDD/ANP-1-126) in the endocrine heart and (b) the circulating CDD/ANP-99-126 (=alpha ANP) in blood plasma. The method we applied earlier to isolate the circulating form of cardiodilatin from human blood was used to detect and analyze the biologically active, predominant form of the same polypeptide family excreted by the kidneys. Each step of the isolation procedure was followed up by a bioassay using an in vitro vascular smooth muscle relaxation test and a highly specific RIA against cardiodilatin (CDD-99-126) for the initial purification steps. The polypeptides excreted in 1000 1 of normal human urine were adsorbed to 2.5 kg of alginic acid, and after elution and lyophilization processed on a G-25 Sephadex column. The obtained crude polypeptide fractions were applied to ion-exchange chromatography. Thereafter four steps of HPLC were carried out to purify the polypeptide which was the suggested form of cardiodilatin (CDD) in human urine. The amino acid analysis and gas phase sequence analysis showed that the main form of urinary cardiodilatin is a 32 amino acid residue containing molecule, cardiodilatin-95–126. The molecule is N-terminally extended compared to the circulating CDD-99-126. This suggests that the analyzed urinary peptide is not the residual plasma form, filtrated and renally cleared from blood, but probably a polypeptide produced and processed in the kidney tubules and cleaved by a different postranslational process. Therefore, this vasorelaxant polypeptide is called urodilatin.

    Notes: Summary A new method was applied to isolate a polypeptide hormone from human blood. The polypeptides from 1,000 1 of hemofiltrate with a molecular weight lower than 20 kDaltons were adsorbed to 2.5 kg alginic acid, then eluted, precipitated, and desalted on a G-25 Sephadex column, thus obtaining a crude lyophilised plasma polypeptide extract. These polypeptides were further submitted to ion-exchange chromatography. Thereafter, two steps of HPLC were carried out to purify a distinct polypeptide which was the circulating form of cardiodilatin (CDD) in this case. The amino acid analysis, C-terminal enzymatic cleavage by carboxypeptidase A, and sequence analysis showed that the only form of circulating cardiodilatin is the 28 amino acid residue containing molecule, cardiodilatin-99-126 cleaved from the C-terminus of cardiodilatin-126 and identical with alpha-ANP (alpha atrial natriuretic polypeptide). Other bioactive molecular forms of the polypeptide hormones of the cardiodilatin family were not detected in the hemofiltrate. The isolation procedure was followed up by a bioassay using in vitro vascular smooth muscle relaxation.
