Cellular and Molecular Aspects of C-Type Natriuretic Peptide (CNP)
It is demonstrated that the major molecular forms in the human brain are C NP-22 and CNP-53, which are identical in pig, rat, human, and mouse precursors.

Natriuretic peptides and therapeutic applications
The NP system thus serves as an important compensatory mechanism against neurohumoral activation in heart failure and provides a strong rationale for the use of exogenous NPs in the management of acutely decompensated heart failure.


A new natriuretic peptide in porcine brain
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), a hormone secreted from mammalian atria, regulates the homoeostatic balance of body fluid and blood pressure1–3. ANP-like immunoreactivity is also present in the

Differential activation by atrial and brain natriuretic peptides of two different receptor guanylate cyclases
The cloning and expression of a second human natriuretic peptide-receptor guanylate cyclase, the ANP-B receptor, is reported, which is preferentially activated by porcine brain natriuric peptide rather than human α-ANP, and may have important implications for the understanding of the central and peripheral control of cardiovascular homeostasis.
