The effect of clenbuterol administration on performance, muscle composition and meat texture was studied in veal calves. Three groups, of ten animals each, were assigned to the three following treatments for 27 days: control, administration of 0·3 and 1·0 ppm in the feed (dry matter basis). After a 14-day withdrawal period, the animals were slaughtered, and(More)
Natriuretic peptide receptor (NPR) A is composed of an extracellular domain (ECD) with a ligand binding site, a single transmembrane region, a kinase homology domain, and a guanylyl cyclase domain. The natural agonists atrial and brain natriuretic peptides (ANP, BNP) bind and activate NPRA, leading to cyclic GMP production, which is responsible for their(More)
Natriuretic peptide receptor A (NPRA) is a noncovalent homodimeric receptor, composed of an extracellular domain (ECD) with a ligand-binding site, a single transmembrane domain (TM), and an intracellular domain (ICD) exhibiting guanylyl cyclase activity. NPRA activation by atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) leads to cGMP production, which plays important(More)
