Concentrations and molecular forms of C-type natriuretic peptide in brain and cerebrospinal fluid.

Abstract

To develop a radioimmunoassay (RIA) specific for human C-type natriuretic peptide (hCNP), we used a highly specific antiserum raised in rabbits. Quantitative inhibition tests with various natriuretic peptides demonstrated that the 50% inhibitory dose of hCNP was 15 fmol, whereas those of other natriuretic peptides were 10(5)-fold higher, indicating a… (More)
