    Neutral endopeptidase (NEP) 24.11 is a zinc-metallopeptidase involved in the metabolism of several biologically active peptides including enkephalin, atrial natriuretic peptide, bradykinin, and endothelin. The enzyme is found in abundant amounts in the brush border of renal proximal epithelial...

    Objective: To elucidate the loss of natriuretic and diuretic properties of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in congestive heart failure (CHF). Methodology: Activity, protein concentrations, mRNA, and immunostaining of neutral endopeptidase (NEP) in kidneys of different models of severe CHF in...

    The heart is a major site of natriuretic peptides (NP). Atrial and brain natriuretic peptide (ANP and BNP) are predominantly produced by atria and ventricles. C-Natriuretic peptide (CNP) is also found in heart tissue. ANP and BNP are produced by cardiomyocytes and fibroblasts. Cardiac...

    Background: Most effects of atrial (ANP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) result from stimulation of the guanylyl-cyclase type A receptor. Chronic elevation causes hyporesponsiveness to ANP, whereas BNP effects tend to be preserved, implying an additional pathway of action. We,...

    Two natriuretic peptides, atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), are found principally in the heart. In preliminary experiments with mouse kidney cells or slices, we found mouse BNP1-45 much more potent than ANP1-28 in causing elevations of cGMP (>50-fold). The...
