Structural Formula Vector Image
Title: Brain Natriuretic Peptide
CAS Registry Number: 114471-18-0
CAS Name: Brain natriuretic factor
Additional Names: B-type natriuretic peptide; BNP
Literature References: Peptide hormone structurally and physiologically similar to atrial natriuretic peptide, q.v. Originally discovered in mammalian brain, subsequently found to be produced primarily by the cardiac ventricle in response to hemodynamic stress. Amino acid sequence shows a marked interspecies diversity; the normal circulating form in humans contains 32 amino acid residues. Isoln from porcine brain: T. Sudoh et al., Nature 332, 78 (1988).
