Cleasby ANPing Up Diabetes : Impaired Natriuretic Peptide Action in Muscle Forms a Mechanistic Link Between Obesity and Diabetes


A growing body of work concerns the role of natriuretic peptides (NPs) in metabolism and insulin sensitivity, the latest addition to which is published in this issue of Diabetes (1). Three principal structurally related NPs exist in mammals: atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), produced primarily by the cardiac atria; brain/B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP… (More)
