natriuresis

The excretion of sodium by the kidneys, which is controlled in large part by atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP). ANP may increase the glomerular filtration rate by binding to ANP receptors on glomerular mesangial cells, causing them to relax, thereby increasing the effective surface area available for filtration.
