Atrial natriuretic factor, originally isolated from the atrium of the heart, has been found to consist of three major groups: atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), B-form natriuretic peptide (BNP), and C-form natriuretic peptide (CNP). In addition, ANP exists in its precursor form, pro-ANP, an active ANP with a longer peptide chain (urodilatin) and an antiparallel dimer of active ANP. Sites and production of these diverse forms of the peptides are also diverse, depending on pathologic states. Three… CONTINUE READING
