Abstract: A immunohistochemical study was carried out to verify whether ANP is present in the lateral ventricle plexus in adult and embryos rats. The results evidenced the ANP presence in ependymal cells of the plexus in adult rat and also in embryo at 16� day of foetal life suggesting the important role of ANP also in the development and maturation of brain.
