Abstract

1. 1. A diuretic hormone is contained in the storage lobes of the corpus cardiacum of Locusta. 2. 2. A dose response curve using an in vitro bioassay on Malpighian tubules, shows a maximal increase in diuresis of ca 3 nl/min with > 0.5 glands/350 μl Ringer. 3. 3. The hormone is thermolabile. 4. 4. Gel permeation and HPLC have resolved two peaks of diuretic activity.
