    Atrial and brain natriuretic peptides (ANP and BNP, respectively) are cardiac hormones, secretions of which are markedly upregulated during cardiac failure, making their plasma levels clinically useful diagnostic markers. ANP and BNP exert potent diuretic, natriuretic and vasorelaxant effects,...

    B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP), and (Cys-18)-atrial natriuretic factor (4-23) amide (C-ANF), are cytoprotective under conditions of ischemia-reperfusion, limiting infarct size. ATP-sensitive K channel (K) opening is also cardioprotective, and although the K...

    Abstract  Atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) receptor guanylate cyclase (ANF-RGC), like the other members of the membrane guanylate cyclase family, is a single transmembrane-spanning protein. The transmembrane domain separates the protein into two regions, extracellular and...

    Abstract  ANF-RGC membrane guanylate cyclase is the receptor for the hypotensive peptide hormones, atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) and type B natriuretic peptide (BNP). It is a single transmembrane spanning protein. Binding the hormone to the extracellular domain activates its...

    Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP, also known as NPPA) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP, also known as NPPB) have been determined as genetic factors for several diseases, including stroke and myocardial infarction, in human and rat models. To investigate the potential association between...

    The endocrine heart produces the polypeptide hormones Atrial Natriuretic Factor (ANF or ANP) and Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP). Through the peripheral actions of these hormones the heart contributes to the regulation of the cardiac preload and afterload. More recently, new functions for these...

  • Pressure Overload-Induced Cardiac Hypertrophy Response Requires Janus Kinase 2-Histone Deacetylase 2 Signaling. Huang Ying; Mao-Chun Xu; Jing-Hua Tan; Jing-Hua Shen; Hao Wang; Dai-Fu Zhang // International Journal of Molecular Sciences;2014, Vol. 15 Issue 11, p20240 

    Pressure overload induces cardiac hypertrophy through activation of Janus kinase 2 (Jak2), however, the underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. In the current study, we tested whether histone deacetylase 2 (HDAC2) was involved in the process. We found that angiotensin II (Ang-II)-induced...
